Transitional Kindergarten (TK)

The Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Program will be extending dates over the next four years. For the 2022-2023 school year, TK is open to students who turn five years old with birthdays between September 2, 2017 thru February 2, 2018.

TK eligible students MUST have a birthday between

September 2, 2017 thru February 2, 2018.

Transitional Kindergarten is a two-year optional kindergarten experience that gives students the “gift of time” to develop foundational behaviors, skills, and attitudes to promote competence and confidence in kindergarten and throughout their comprehensive school experience. Students must be fully potty-trained in order to register for TK.

Transitional Kindergarten instruction takes place in a flexible, play-centered, and developmental environment attentive to the social and emotional stages of each child. The curriculum follows California State guidelines with a pacing that is developmentally appropriate while encouraging cultural and linguistic diversity.

If you have further questions, please call Teresa Flores at 408-227-8300 ext. 100267.

For TK Enrollment

Registration for TK opens March 1, 2022 for the 2022-23 school year. Parents are highly encouraged to begin the registration process online with supporting registration documents submitted to your child’s home school. In-person registration is also available at your child’s home school. TK may not be offered at your child's home school and in order to balance the attendance, placements will be made by Educational Services.

**Note that since not all schools offer TK, your child may attend TK at a school other than their home school. In these cases, students will return to their home school for kindergarten--unless an Intra-district application is received and approved to continue at a TK site. 

Priority will be to place students at their home school, if TK is available. Otherwise, students will be placed at the nearest school with TK availability. Between March-May, home schools will collect TK registration forms to be placed at a site by June 1st.  After June 1st, students will be placed by Educational Services as registration forms are received.  In all cases, Educational Services will notify families of the student’s site placement.
