Early Kindergarten Evaluations

If you would like your child to be evaluated for possible Early Kindergarten placement NC school systems require an evaluation completed no earlier than April 16 of  each year. I recommend that early kindergarten testing should be completed and submitted to your school by June or July. However, the report and portfolio can be turned in no later than 30 days after your child's fall semester starts.

What is required: 

North Carolina schools require a  child portfolio including samples of your child's work, letters of recommendation, and  I.Q. and achievement test results. Early entry to kindergarten testing must be done by a private practice psychologist.  To qualify for early placement your child will need to score at the 98th percentile or higher on the I.Q. test and at the 98th percentile or higher in reading OR math on the achievement test.
