About Transitional Kindergarten-TK
TK is year one of a two year kindergarten program. TK provides an early childhood education program that builds a bridge between the preschool years and traditional kindergarten. With increasing academic demands and structure in kindergarten, some parents are aware that their child may not be ready for the traditional kindergarten program. The TK program also offers children the benefit of socializing and becoming students while learning to work in a school setting. If you feel your child would benefit from a year of academic exploration and a readiness curriculum without the academic demands, you can request a waiver for TK if your child is eligible for kindergarten.
About Expansion Transitional Kindergarten-ETK
ETK is also available for younger children. The Transitional Kindergarten program follows the full day 6-hour daily schedule of traditional kindergarten Monday through Friday during the 180 day school year. The ETK program is designed to provide a quality preschool experience for low-income students in order to lower the dropout rate and increase high school graduation rates by cultivating strong language and literacy skills at a very young age. ETK students will not be able to accelerate to 1st grade at the end of the ETK under any circumstances; these children are very young.
Curriculum in TK and ETK
The programs provide children with a well-planned classroom program to build necessary social and academic skills for success throughout their school careers. The programs are based on the California Kindergarten Common Core State Standards with focused instruction in literacy and numeracy along with strong emphasis on self-regulation and social engagement. The daily schedule includes whole group instruction and activities, small group instruction and independent and “hands-on” learning. Transitional kindergartners enjoy lunch and recess with their fellow kindergarten friends and participate in all kindergarten activities such as music, art, and motor skills development throughout the year.
Communication between home and school is essential in helping children succeed. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in their child’s learning journey at home and at school. A variety of activities and workshops support parents and children in Transitional Kindergarten. The child’s teacher will meet with parents on a regular basis to discuss the child’s progress and ways the parent can support him/her at home. Assessments, along with teacher observations, will be used to monitor each child’s growth and progress throughout the year. Staff members will use this information to guide instruction, individualized to meet every child’s needs.
More information about the programs can be found at at the California Department of Education website.
Please read the LAUSD ETK guidelines carefully.
Space is limited to 24 seats per class.
All others will be placed on a wait list.
Priority order for enrollment is as follows:
Family residency within our school boundary is a priority. Please use the RESIDENT SCHOOL FINDER to determine if we are your resident school. After all resident children have been offered enrollment, schools may enroll students outside of the resident school boundary, but within LAUSD boundaries.
