Age Cutoffs and Cutoff Dates

The age cutoff is the age a student needs to be to attend a particular grade. For all schools participating in My School DC, an applicant for PK3 must be 3 years old by September 30, 2019, an applicant for PK4 must be 4 years old by September 30, 2019, and an applicant for Kindergarten must be 5 years old by September 30, 2019. In other grades, age cutoffs vary by school and are listed below. If your child does not make the age cutoff for a particular school, you will not be able to select that school on your application.
