    • Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, Louisiana law now requires all students that turn five (5) years of age by Sept. 30th to attend mandatory kindergarten classes.
    • The new requirement is expected to help improve academic performance by ensuring all children are attending school and learning basic skills at an early age.  

     Note:  Children displaced by emergency situations will be given extra consideration regarding required documentation.
