Dear Parent or Guardian,
We are looking forward to welcoming your child into Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten in Poway Unified School District for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. As your student begins in our District, it is important to share information regarding Poway’s Kindergarten/Transitional Kindergarten programs.

According to California Education Code 48000, if your child has his or her fifth birthday on or before September 1, 2017, he/she may enroll in Kindergarten. If your child has his/her fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2, 2017, he/she will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten. Transitional Kindergarten is the first of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.

Kindergarten classes in PUSD meet for a full day, while TK classes meet for a half-day. Each of our elementary sites will determine arrival and dismissal times for both programs, and host a fee-based Extended Student Services (ESS) program for before and after school for care. Please contact your child’s school if you have questions.

The following chart is helpful to determine enrollment in Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten.
Kindergarten 5th birthday Sept. 2, 2017 to Sept. 1, 2017
