Extra Year in Primary

Published: 8/9/2022 11:18 AM

The primary program is a prerequisite for entrance into grade four. For each school having a primary program as defined and established by KRS 158.031 and 704 KAR 3:440​, if it is determined that a primary student is not prepared for entrance into grade four, an additional year in primary may be offered to the student.   ​

The local school district must determine if the student has met the requirements for promotion to grade four. Therefore, according to student records maintained by the school, if a student has not met the necessary requirements to complete the primary program, the school may offer a fifth year in primary to the student to fully prepare the student prior to entering grade four.   ​
