Transitional Kindergarten

WUSD Transitional Kindergarten Program Opens to 4-Year-Old Students

California Assembly Bill 130 has made it possible for all four-year-olds in California to enroll in Transitional Kindergarten (TK). Starting in 2022-2023 AB 130 extends the birthday window by two months each year so that every child who turns four by September 1st can attend a public school TK program (by 2025-2026).

WUSD TK and Kindergarten enrollment begins January 8, 2024. Please visit the Wiseburn USD website for information and access to our online enrollment platform for your student.
