    individual child and how ready they are for K. What people do in the area if they don't send to K at the elementary school is send kids to preschool programs that also have a K and then on to 1st after. I guess there is the Option to repeat K at the elementary school. My question is why would it be preferred to send to K at a new school for 1 year rather than K at the elementary school knowing there may be a need to repeat?
