Newhall School District Kindergarten Programs for the 2013-2014 School Year

Kindergarten in California is now a two-year program, starting with Transitional Kindergarten (TK) classes. Transitional Kindergarten addresses the needs of younger students using a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.  Transitional Kindergarten students have their own standards, curriculum, and report card.  Students then move to a traditional Kindergarten classroom in the second year of their school experience.

Students who will turn five between September 2nd and December 2nd in 2013 will be assigned to TK classes in 2013-2014 and will then be Kindergarten students in 2014-2015. There will be a TK classroom for students at each of the district’s ten schools. Parents may pick up transitional Kindergarten packets at their home school site beginning February 11, 2013.
