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 2022-2023 school year if his/her fifth birthday is on or before September 1, 2022.
Transitional Kindergarten (TK): A child is eligible for TK for the 2022-2023 school year if his/her birthday is on or between September 2, 2022 - February 2, 2023. 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.
Transition from TK to Universal TK:
The year 2022-2023 starts a four year transition into Universal TK. Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, children who turn five between September 2 and February 2 will be 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.
As a result of these changes in Law, ESK will no longer be offered.
