Confused about when I have to file

Postby angelap2013 » Tue Oct 01, 2013 10:36 pm

So, I have 2 daughters - one is 5 and one is 4.

My 5 year old will turn 6 in February (2014). I know the law is that I have to file in October the year she is going to start school.

What I don't understand is if she is legally required to start this year (2013-2014 school year) because she will turn 6 DURING that period,

OR

if she is legally required to start school in September of 2014, because she turned 6 THAT year?

In other words, is this the October I file the the PSA or next?

BTW, she is already being homeschooled, just want to know the exact law. Because, it does state between age 6-18. And if it is next year that I file, won't she BE 6 for several months during a school year before the next one starts? So, doesn't that break their law?

I assume you're in California. :-)

Kindergarten is not mandatory in California. Your daughter was 5 when the school year started, so that's what counts, not that she will have her 6th birthday during the year.

Your daughter will not be compulsory school age until the school year that begins in August/September 2014. Yes, she will be 6 for several months. If she were going to the local public school, she wouldn't start in February; she'd start the next fall, right? Not when she turned 6? Well, there you go.

So you will file your Private School Affidavit between October 1 and 15, 2014.
