Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Information
TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.  The program allows students the time to mature socially, emotionally, and academically.  Pursuant to law, EC 48000(c), a child is eligible for TK if a child will have his/her 5th birthday between September 2 and December 2 (inclusive). TK is part of the public education system of Poway Unified School District and there is no cost to attend.

TK follows the same school year (start date, vacations, professional growth days, etc.) as the K-5 students except that TK is a half-day program and ends at 1:05 p.m. every school day at Creekside.  [Fee-based Extended School Services (ESS) program is available for TK students who need before and/or after-school care.  ESS hours are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on school days.]

TK Interest Wait List Information:  Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2018 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List found HERE.  The assigned TK school site will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer,  of an opening in TK. The parent will then be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.
The following chart is helpful to determine enrollment in Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten.

PUSD is aware of the amendment to California Education Code 48000(c) which permits districts the option to enroll students who turn 5 years of age after December 2 to be admitted to the Transitional Kindergarten program.  After a review of this option, our District enrolls only students who meet the cutoff date of December 2 into the Transitional Kindergarten program.

Please call the school office at 858-391-1514 if you have additional questions.
