Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Information

Enrollment eligibility for Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten are determined by California Education Code (Section 46300, 48000, and 48010).  The date a child turns five years of age determines their placement.

Kindergarten:   A child is eligible for Kindergarten for the CURRENT 2023-2024 school year if his/her fifth birthday is on or before September 1, 2023.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK):   TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program and uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.  A child will be required to complete a full year of Kindergarten the following school year.

A child is eligible for TK for the CURRENT 2023-2024 school year if his/her fifth birthday is on or between September 2, 2023 - April 2, 2024.

Transition from TK to Universal TK:
The year 2022-2023 was the start of a four year transition into Universal TK.  Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, children who turned five between September 2 and February 2 were admitted to a TK program in the district.  In the 2023-2024 school year, children who turn five between September 2 and April 2 will be admitted to a TK program in the district.  In the year 2024-2025, children who turn five between September 2 and June 2 will be admitted to TK.  In the year 2025-2026 and thereafter, children turning four by September 1 will be admitted to a TK program in the district.
