Oregon Statutes - Chapter 336 - Conduct of Schools Generally - Section 336.095 - Free kindergarten facilities; rules; admission of underage child.

(1) The district school board of every common school district shall provide kindergarten facilities free of charge for the kindergarten children residing in the district by operating such facilities either singly or jointly with other districts or by contracting with public or private providers that conform to standards adopted by rule by the State Board of Education.

(2) However, nothing in this section prevents a district school board from admitting free of charge a child who is a resident of the district and whose needs for cognitive, social and physical development would best be met in the school program, as defined by policies of the district school board, even though the child has not attained the minimum age requirement.

(3) Kindergartens established under subsection (1) of this section shall be funded in the same manner as other schools of the district are funded.

(4) Kindergartens are an integral part of the public school system of this state. [1973 c.707 §3; 1981 c.543 §1; 1993 c.45 §81; 2005 c.22 §232]
