Enrollment Policies

Age Requirements (2018-19 School Year)

Kindergarten: California law now requires that a child must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018 to be legally eligible for Kindergarten and six years old on or before September 1, 2018 to be legally eligible for first grade.

Transitional Kindergarten (TK): Students who will have their fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2, 2018 are eligible for a Transitional Kindergarten program for the 2018-2019 school year. Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.

Transitional Kindergarten Wait List: Our Franklin-McKinley School Board is incredibly progressive and has expanded our TK Program to include children who turn 5 by May 31, 2019 on a space available basis. Children who turn 5 between September 2 and December 2, 2017 are eligible for priority enrollment in TK. Franklin-McKinley School District also offers TK when space is available (TK Wait List) based on developmental readiness and the following age criteria:

  • Students whose fifth birthday lies between December 3 and January 2 in the current school year, will be considered first.
  • Students whose fifth birthday lies between January 3 and January 31 in the current school year will be considered second.
  • Students whose fifth birthday lies between February 1 and May 31 in the current school year will be considered third.
Eligible children with a completed enrollment packet may be placed on the TK Waitlist by contacting the Early Learning Department at (408) 283-6039.
