Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (or TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program created under state law for children who will turn age five during the months/years shown in the table below.

Senate Bill (SB) 1381, the Kindergarten Readiness Act, required California school districts to transition to a two-year kindergarten program beginning in 2012. LEUSD offers Transitional Kindergarten at all K-5 and K-8 school sites.
