• Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that the District offers at a few school sites for eligible students who do not meet the minimum age requirement for kindergarten.   


    • Students eligible for TK must have their fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2 of the applicable school year.
    • There is no early entry into TK.


    • TK is voluntary and is offered free of charge to families.


    • Pre-registration forms are available through Student Support Services in person and online.
    • Evidence of student’s age must be presented to a Student Support Services’ staff member to verify age eligibility to TK
    • Once student is assigned to a class, parent/guardian will be contacted by school site personnel to complete registration at the school site. 


    • The District does not provide transportation for TK students.
    • Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.


    • Students in the TK program participate in a two-year kindergarten experience: TK is the first year and kindergarten is the second year.
    • TK students  return to their residence attendance area school for kindergarten.   
      • If you wish for your student to attend kindergarten at the TK school, follow the intradistrict transfer process during the open enrollment period for the succeeding year.  Requesting a transfer for your student does not guarantee continued placement at the TK school. 


    • Students who reside outside of CVUSD boundaries and wish to attend grades TK-12 in CVUSD, may apply through the interdistrict transfer process.  Parents/Guardians shall request the interdistrict transfer from their resident district and both districts must approve the transfer request before pre-registering for TK in CVUSD.
