CCUSD will be offering a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program in the 2012-13 school year. Although it was recently announced that the funding has been cut by the governor, CCUSD will go ahead and offer this TK program next school year (2012-13). However, depending on future funding, CCUSD may not be able to offer this program in subsequent years.
The cut off date for enrolling in kindergarten will be moved back by one month for the next three school years by the California Department of Education. In the past, students were able to enter kindergarten if they turned five by December 2. Next school year students must be five years old on or before November 1 to enroll in kindergarten. Students with birthdays from November 2 to December 2 will enter the Transitional Kindergarten program. In addition, parents of students that will turn five in September or October may chose the Transitional Kindergarten program or enter a traditional Kindergarten program.
CCUSD will be offering Transitional Kindergarten Parent Nights to provide parents with more information on this option. Please refer to CCUSD’s Educational Services website for more information about the TK program.
