Can kindergarten attendance be deferred on the basis of maturity?
State Board of Education regulations allow parents/guardians to submit a one year level of maturity waiver for a kindergarten age child if the parents believe that a delay in kindergarten attendance is in the best interest of their child. Such a child, however, must attend kindergarten the next year. Kindergarten aged students cannot attend public prekindergarten. This includes kindergarten aged students with a kindergarten waiver on file.
