Transitional Kindergarten

TUSD has a Transitional Kindergarten option for those students who turn five years old between September 2 and December 2, 2018 and is available at selected elementary schools in the 2017-18 school year. 

To be eligible for Kindergarten in the 2018-19  school year, a child must be five years old by September 1, 2018. 

WHY? 

Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 (SB 1382) began the 2012-2013 school year which changed the required birthday for admission to Kindergarten from December 2 to November 1 in California.  It was part of a phase-in that changed the Kindergarten cutoff date by one month each year (November 1 in 2012-2013, October 1 in 2013-2014, and September 1 in 2014-2015 and each school year thereafter).  

The following documents must be provided at the time of registration:

  1. Immunization Verification Records
  2. Original Birth Certificate, Passport or Baptismal Certificate
  3. Proof of Residence (e.g. current TID, PG& E bill or rental agreement)
