Enrolling your Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten Student
Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, SB 1381 "The Kindergarten Readiness Act," moves up the State's kindergarten entry date by one month a year through 2014. Children must be 5 years old on or before October 1, 2013 to enroll in kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year.
The Kindergarten Readiness Act also created a new program called, "Transitional Kindergarten." Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program. Children eligible for TK in 2013-2014 are children who will have their 5th birthday on or between October 2 and December 2.
Please be advised that the cutoff date for kindergarten entry will continue to move up by one month per year over the next year as follows:
