This bill would have the effect of changing the compulsory attendance age from 6 to 5, because it would require a child who turns 6 by January 1 of the school year to start school in the fall while the child was still 5. Current law requires that the child be 6 by September 1 before having to start school. The compulsory attendance age for children enrolled in kindergarten would likewise be changed from 5 to 4.
Died in committee. See "Bill History" link below.
