I think I know the answer to this as I researched it two years ago. My youngest little girl is born Sept 2004. If we had lived in NC when she started KG, she would have missed the new Aug 31 cut off date for KG. Here in NYC the cut off is Dec 31 so she is in the first grade. She finishes the first grade in June and we are moving July! (We have a buyer for our house!). I was told by WCPSS 2 years ago that if she had started kg in NY, and it was a public school, she wouldn't be "demoted". Being a second grader, I am sure this isn't the case but I can't find it on the website. There used to be a paragraph saying the above about KG!!!

If she's completed 1st grade, she'll go to 2nd grade here.

Yeah, but first grade in SI is probably the same as second here. She will be bored very soon.

she'll be fine, they group readers by ability, my DD was advanced in a reading as well and she's always been allowed to read on her own level at school here.

My son is in kindergarten and they have put him in advanced reading and math classes. I'd imagine that they have similar programs for all of the grades. They may have other advanced classes, such as art, music, etc that I don't know about.

In my experience, the elem schools do a decent job of grouping readers by ability but not in math. You really have to stay on top of the math and push for your child to get work appropriate to his/her level.

New User--I've never heard of advanced math and reading classes for K. Are you at a special school?

Nope. Just plain ol' Yates Mill ES.

I don't know the details, but one or more days a week he is taken out of his kindergarten class (along with 2 other children in other K classes) to meet with a teacher to read more advanced books (i.e., chapter books). They discuss characters, storyline, etc. They are also given homework where they have to read a few chapters in a book and comment on some aspect of the story.

I don't know anything about the math class as we just got the letter of intent and permission slip the other day.

What kind of data do you have to support this? Very curious.
