About Transitional Kindergarten
Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program that uses a modified Kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. TK serves as a bridge between preschool and kindergarten for children who will turn 5 years old on or between September 2 and April 2 during the year they attend.
Our TK Program is Growing!
- Students who turn 5 between September 2, 2022 and February 2, 2023 can enroll in TK for the 2022-23 school year.
- Students who turn 5 between September 2, 2023 and April 2, 2024 can enroll in TK for the 2023-24 school year.
- TK is expanding to Dunsmore and Franklin Elementary beginning with the 2023-24 school year!
TK Registration for the 2023-24 School Year is Now Open!
How to Enroll in TK
Step 1: Visit our School Finder to find your school of residence.
Step 2: Download and complete a registration packet on our registration page.
Step 3: Visit preenroll.gusd.net to upload your registration packet and supporting documents.
Step 4: Contact your school to make an appointment to finalize your registration.
All students should visit their school of residence to register for TK, whether or not your school offers a TK program. If your school does not offer TK, your student will be assigned to a nearby school with a TK class. Students will return to their home school for kindergarten.
