    I am aware of this and have been a part of that entire process.
    I've been teaching TK/K combos for the last two years and will
    again this year.

    There is more legislation, but I'm not sure of the wording...
    having kids enter (perhaps TK) but at a younger age than what's
    in the works right now. Last year a child was allowed by my
    school board to enter on her birthday in December. I'll try to do
    more asking around and post back. Thank you, anyway.
