Child's Birthdate and School Year Incompatible

I am trying to register my child for kindergarten but when I enter his correct birthdate the system will not allow me to register him for kindergarten despite only being 5 years old. Howver, it will allow me to enroll him for first grade.

Thank you for reaching out in the Community!

If you are receiving a message that the birth date has been entered in the incorrect format, I recommend ensuring the birth date is entered in the format stated with the registration form.  I also recommend ensuring there are no spaces before or after each number listed in the birth date.

The birthdate is acceptable when I list the child as attending first grade. It is not accepted for a child attending kindergarten.

Hello @kballenger , thank you for participating in PowerSchool Community!

 

We're glad to hear you were able to successfully submit your form! I would suggest contacting your school district directly to let them know that your student will be attending kindergarten rather than 1st grade.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions!
