Children reading a book

Children who will have their fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2 are eligible to enroll in a Transitional Kindergarten program. Transitional Kindergarten provides time for younger students to engage in early academic learning experiences designed to promote success in kindergarten and beyond.

Full-Day Program

Schools provide a full-day program for Transitional Kindergarten students. Exceptions to this recommendation were made for a select set of schools that provided a compelling rationale and community support for a modified-day program. The following schools have been approved to offer a modified day program : 1) Dingeman, 2) E.B. Scripps, 3) Loma Portal, and 4) Longfellow.

How to Register 

Families can register their eligible students (five years old between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2) at their neighborhood school or can request another campus through the Choice Program. The Choice program option is available via the district website at www.sandi.net/apply . Once you've selected to apply in English or Spanish, select the link that asks, “Is your child new to the district?”. 

Transitional Kindergarten is a part of the public school system and is free for families.
