Do you offer a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program?

Students must turn 5 between September 2-December 2. Kindergarten age-eligible students are allowed to choose TK if their 5th birthday is between June 1st-September 1st; however, they must sign the Kindergarten Continuance Form verifying that the parent/guardian agrees to have his/her child continue in kindergarten for one additional year. Students may not be promoted directly from TK to 1st grade.

For students with their 5th birthday after December 2nd, they must enter TK on or after their 5th birthday. If a student turns 5 after September 1st, entering kindergarten is not an option, they must enroll in TK.

To enroll in Kindergarten, students must turn 5 on or before September 1st.

Do students have to attend state testing in person?

All students are required to attend California state testing (or complete an alternative assessment on the same test dates and locations). State-required testing must be completed at one of our pre-arranged locations and may not be taken from home.

The dates for administration of these tests are set by the state and will be on the calendar at the beginning of the school year.  When state testing is required, students and parents must arrange for transportation to and from the nearest testing location. For more information, please see our Assessment page.
