If you have a child, who will be five (5) years old after August 15 or before September 30, 2018 and are interested in Early Entry, please contact the Germantown Municipal School District Department of Academic Advancement to sign up for the Kindergarten Early Screening.
Contact Mrs. Jennifer McAlpin at 901-752-7900 to set up the time for your child's screening or for questions.
A child must be five (5) years of age on or before August 15th of the current school term to be admitted to kindergarten. Upon request of the parent any child that will reach the age of five (5) years old prior to September 30 of the current school term may be tested to determine eligibility for placement in Kindergarten. Before screening, a copy of the child's birth certificate and proof of Germantown residency must be provided.
This screening serves as a parent's appeal to the kindergarten age requirement set by the State of Tennessee. Early Entry admittance is granted to students who meet or exceed the State's criteria for characteristics of giftedness.
