2023- 2024 Enrollment Information
Children with a 5th birthday between September 2, 2022 to September 1, 2023 are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2023-24 school year.
For students who turn five between June 1st and September 1st, 2023, 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. Parents of eligible students will have an opportunity to add their student to TK Interest List within the digital enrollment packet. The TK Interest List will be open from April 1, 2023, at 8 a.m. through April 14, 2023, at 5 p.m.
Please note: TK placement is NOT guaranteed. Students will be seated on a space-available basis according to the TK Interest List.
According to California Education Code 48000, if your child has his or her 5th birthday on or before September 1st, 2023, he/she may enroll in Kindergarten. If your child has his/her 5th birthday between September 2nd and April 2nd, 2024, 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 April 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 April 2nd into TK.
The following chart is helpful to determine enrollment in Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten:
||5th birthday, Sept. 2nd, 2022 to Sept. 1st, 2023
| Transitional Kindergarten (TK)
|| 5th birthday, Sept. 2nd, 2023 to April. 2nd, 2024
