The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think
critically... Intelligence plus character -- that is the goal of true education. --

The California Department of Education approved a request from PUSD to waive Education Code Section 37202(a) allowing Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students to attend school for a half day program. The waiver, # 14-3-2016-W-06, was approved at the July 13, 2016 meeting and is in effect from June 30, 2016 to June 30, 2017. The rationale behind this request rests on several points:
1. TK is intended to be the first year of a two year Kindergarten experience. PUSD believes it is in the best interest of TK students to attend school within the required number of instructional minutes for Kindergarten, which is 180 minutes, of a half day.
2. TK students participate in an intensive language arts and math curricula aligned to the California State Standards (2010) in ELA and Math. They also experience instruction in other core areas during this time, as well as support for behavioral, social and emotional development. This structure ensures that our TK students are fully prepared to meet the academic rigor in the second year of the Kindergarten sequence.
3. TK teachers in PUSD are fully credentialed educators who provide intervention and enrichment support to other primary classrooms in the afternoon portion of their daily schedule. This structure collectively reduces class size for our primary students in grades K-2, and ensures high quality teachers are working with students needing additional supports or enrichment.
2016-2017 TK/Kindergarten and New Student Enrollment
(There are no school site specific forms)
IMMUNIZATION: Immunization must be fully completed/up to date (on schedule) for enrollment, unless exempted as provided by law. According to the California Department of Public Health, children can be fully immunized for school entry into transitional kindergarten/kindergarten by 4 years of age. A new law SB277, effective January 1, 2016, eliminates personal/religious beliefs exemptions. Medical exemptions signed by a physician (M.D. or D.O.) licensed in California are acceptable.”
