EDUCATION

FOR THE CHILDREN
According to the Illinois School Code, children who will be 5 years old on or before September 1 may begin school. Based upon an assessment of a child’s school readiness, a school district may choose to permit a child to attend school prior to that date, or it may choose not to do so.
