Grade Assignment

The curriculum followed at Sebastopol Charter is based on a developmental model that is directly linked to the age of the student. Below is our grade assignment by student age (birth date) policy.

Students will be enrolled or assigned in the lottery in each class according to the following chart.

Note: Transitional Kindergarten (TK), applies for those children turning 5 years of age between June 2 and December 2. All Kindergarten classrooms are mixed age and include Transitional Kindergarten students. 

Parental concerns about potential grade placement for their child that is different from this chart must be submitted in writing to the Enrollment Coordinator, Rachael Flug, and approved by the Executive Director.
