Keep in Mind...

  • Early Entrance (a form of acceleration) must be thought of as an intervention, not an 'opportunity'. This type of acceleration, along with whole grade acceleration, also know as grade skipping, is appropriate for less than 0.5% of the general population. It is not an opportunity to 'get a leg up' and get started sooner than average.
  • The Osseo Procedure only allows for students who turn 5 years old by November 1st of 2015 to be eligible for this assessment.
  • Make sure to schedule your early childhood screening BEFORE you apply for early entrance. Call the ISD 279 Screening Office. Call (763) 391-8776, Monday-Friday, September through May, to schedule an appointment.
  • APPLICATION DEADLINE - APRIL 15, 2015 The Early Entrance to Kindergarten Application must be received at the Enrollment Center by 3:30pm on APRIL 15, 2015. The Enrollment Center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 3:30pm.
