Transitional Kindergarten Page
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.

A Change in Kindergarten and TK Eligibility
As shown in the table below, any child who will turn age five between September 2, 2013 and December 2, 2013 is eligible to enroll in Transitional Kindergarten. The cutoff date for Kindergarten has been changed to September 1, for any child who turns five on or before September 1, 2013.
