Indiana Teachers Association on Kindergarten enrollment cutoff confusion

Morning News

INDIANAPOLIS — Some Indiana parents are confused on whether their child makes the cutoff date to start kindergarten.

The rule used to be that children had to turn 5 by Aug. 1, but several years ago the state said it would also cover the cost of educating kindergarten students who are 5 by Oct. 1.

Not all school districts follow that Oct. 1 cutoff date, though, so depending on where you live, you may have to wait to send your child to kindergarten.

We talk to Keith Gambill, president of the Indiana State Teachers Association, to help clear things up.
