Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten

Overview

鶹Ƶ City Unified has expanded its transitional kindergarten to 39 locations for the 2024-2025 school year.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is a stepping stone between preschool and kindergarten. The optional program provides students with an additional year of preparation, so they enter kindergarten with stronger academic, social, and emotional skills needed for future success in school. 

Assembly Bill 130, signed by Governor Newsom in July 2021, expands TK programs to make it available to all 4-year-olds by 2025-2026. The new program will be gradually phased in expanding the existing TK classrooms until it covers all 4-year-olds in the state.
