Welcome to NVUSD's webpage for Transitional Kindergarten, also known as TK.  Below are answers to some of the most common questions parents have about TK:

  • Students turning 5 on and between September 2 and December 2 qualify for TK.
  • TK curriculum and instruction links preschool and kindergarten academic, social-emotional and physical development preparing them for kindergarten the following year.
  • Registration for TK is the same as for kindergarten. 
  • TK students must attend their resident school if it offers TK.  If space is not available, students may be placed at other schools offering TK.  TK students may open-enroll only at Magnet schools.
  • Parents will be notified by their resident school during the first week in February regarding placement.
