My son is turning 4 years old this sunday, and he has being going to pre-K since he was 2, but now he says that he doesn't want to go anymore because he gets so bored, my question is if he can go to kindergarden the upcoming year . He already knows the alfabet, color, shapes, sounds of letters, etc.
The Code of Virginia and Fairfax County Public Schools policy state that a child's fifth birthday must fall on or before September 30th of the school year for the child to be eligible to attend a Virginia public school. There are no waivers or considerations based student skills. If you choose to place your child in private kindergarten because he doesn't meet the public school age requirements, your son will be considered eligible for kindergarten the following year. However, the principal has the option of promoting your son to first grade upon review of his academic record and staff assessment of performance.
