I would contact the advocate and see what they tell you about the law there. My state law is the same as the pp posted. Parents can choose to retain in pre-K, but by doing so you forfeit services. To continue receiving the services, the child has to go to K if they're 5.

If the advocate tells you it's possible to do what you want in CA, I'd go to the meeting and see what the school team says. I'd be prepared for them to try to convince you to send your son to K. If the meeting does not go your way, then you can try going the advocate route. I agree with the pp that it does set a tone that you may not want to set for your son's entire school career. I would try to work with the school on your own first.
