Current law requires that a child be 6 years old by September 1 in order to be of compulsory attendance age. This bill would require a child who turns 6 by January 1 of the school year to attend school. This would mean that some children would be compelled to attend school at age 5. HSLDA believes that parents, not the state, are best able to determine when a child is ready to attend school.
