What is a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Program?

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is defined as the first year of a two-year Kindergarten program for children who do not yet meet the minimum age criterion for admittance into Kindergarten. 

Children are eligible for TK if they turn 4 on or before September 1, 2024. 

Students who complete the TK program attend Kindergarten the following school year.
