petition to allow children already enrolled to be exempt from policy changes. sign now

The DODEA School Board changed its age requirements for enrollment into the pre kindergarten and kindergarten program for the 09-10 school year from Oct. 16th to Sept. 1st. They put this policy into affect after children were already enrolled for this year. They then decided that they would not grandfather in the children that are enrolled this year in pre kindergarten and in kindergarten to move on if their birth dates fell after the new cutoff of Sept. 1st. Their policy states that no exceptions will be made. It has come to my attention that they are grandfathering in the kindergarten kids next year but are still refusing to allow the pre kindergarten kids to move on.

I am not arguing with the new cutoff dates. Had I been notified that it was a possibility that this would happen then I wouldnt have enrolled my child this year but waited for next year. My daughter loves school, and I have been told by her teacher that she meets and exceeds all requirements to move onto kindergarten next year. Yet she is being held back because of a policy that wasnt passed until after she started school. This policy needs to be changed so that it doesnt effect students that are enrolled this year but starts fresh with the kids that are enrolled for next school year. This is going to be very damaging to their self esteem, and can hurt their entire approach to school.

    Regression in Children's education is unacceptable which is what will clearly happen if these children are not allowed to move forward to Kindergarten.

    Don't punish our children because the DODEA has a poorly implemented policy change. Ridiculous!!!!

    I am also a parent that has a child being affected by this policy change. This policy change should not affect pre-k children that were enrolled for the 2008-2009 school year.
