Transitional Kindergarten

What Is Transitional Kindergarten (TK)?

TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. 

Pursuant to California
 EC 48000(c)(3)(A), "In the 2014—15 school year and each school year thereafter
, a child who has his or her fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2 of the school year shall be admitted to a transitional kindergarten program maintained by the school district or charter school."
