Carmel Unified School District

Transitional Kindergarten


As required by the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010, Carmel Unified School District offers a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program. 


Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.


In order for your child to be placed in TK for the 2012-2013 school year, he or she must have had their fifth birthday between November 2 and December 2.


In order for your child to be placed in TK for the 2013-2014 school year, he or she must have their fifth birthday between October 2 and December 2.


If your child’s birthday falls within the TK timeframes above, please contact your school secretary.


The third and final year of the TK transition, 2014-2015, will serve 5 year olds with birthdays between September 2 and December 2.  From 2014-2015 on, all children with September 2 through December 2 birthdays will be placed in TK.
