At Academic Learning Labs we find it important to highlight changes in our local schools. Capistrano Unified School District has just announced that they will be offering the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program of fall of 2012.
In order for students to qualify, children must turn five years old on November 2 – December 2, 2012. Transitional Kindergarten is offered to students who, because of the kindergarten age rollback, will miss the cutoff to enter kindergarten.
This is the first year of the two-year kindergarten program provided for in the SB 1381 legislation or the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010. Transportation is not provided for these students so parents will need to plan accordingly. At the end of the TK year, students will matriculate to their home schools for regular kindergarten.
Parents can pre-register for the program by going to CUSD’s website and click on Parent Links- Transitional Kindergarten. You can find the Intent to Register and then email this directly to the District. Pre-registered students will be assigned to one of the three sites throughout the District (Crown Valley, Benedict and Bathgate Elementary Schools).
