New Student Enrollment for the 2022-23 school year is now open!
Children with a 5th birthday between September 2, 2021 to September 1, 2022 are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten.
For students who turn five between June 1st and September 1st, 2022, and whose parents would like them to attend TK rather than Kindergarten, you must first enroll your child in their age appropriate grade of Kindergarten.
The online enrollment packet will provide information regarding the PUSD TK Interest list for all age eligible students. The PUSD TK Interest List is only open to those families living within PUSD boundaries and will only be open online from April 18, 2022, at 8 a.m. through April 29, 2022, at 5 p.m. Once enrolled, your school will provide information on how to submit your child's name on the TK Interest List. Your child will remain enrolled in Kindergarten at your school of residence until availability of TK placement is determined.
According to California Education Code 48000, if your child has his or her 5th birthday on or before September 1st, 2022, he/she may enroll in Kindergarten. If your child has his/her 5th birthday between September 2nd and February 2nd, 2023, he/she will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten. PUSD is aware of the amendment to California Education Code 48000(c) that permits school districts the option to enroll students who turn 5 after February 2nd to be admitted to the TK program. After a review of the impact this option would have on our District, we enroll only students who meet the cut-off dates and not children who turn 5 after February 2nd into TK.
The following chart is helpful to determine enrollment in Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten:
