We have a Lion scout who is repeating Kindergarten. He will turn 6 before the school year starts. His parents prefer him to move on with his friends to Tiger program. But in reviewing the BSA requirements (below), will he be required at some point to sit out a year or audit a year? Will the BSA refuse to register him for a rank if he does not meet the grade requirement? Thank you.
