Save the Date! Webinar: Introduction to Expanded Transitional Kindergarten

  • Print

December 7, 2015 Consider joining Early Edge California and the California Department of Education on December 17, at 10 a.m., for a webinar that will provide an overview of expanded transitional kindergarten funding.

As part of a clarification in this year's budget bill, schools across California now have another local option to get more 4 year olds ready for kindergarten: expanding transitional kindergarten. Expanded TK is a flexible and cost-effective local option for schools to offer school readiness opportunities to children who otherwise would not be able to enroll in TK, and who might not have access to other preschool programs in their community. For schools that choose to implement Expanded TK, Early Edge California will act as a resource on providing a high-quality and developmentally appropriate experience, as it has since the launch of TK in 2012.

The webinar will provide an overview of how Expanded TK works. School Services of California will preview upcoming fiscal tools for schools to model TK expansion options and costs. And the webinar will also provide information about district experiences with TK expansion.
