Transitional Kindergarten Update from SFUSD website

TK is being offered for 2012 - 2013 at Havard or McLaren Early Education schools

Here is the a cut and paste from the SFUSD website, the full notice is here

In mid-January, the Governor proposed eliminating funding and the mandate for Transitional Kindergarten as part of his state budget proposal. The legislature is required by law to adopt its budget by July 1 of each year. Given the uncertainty of whether or not California is going to fund and continue to mandate Transitional Kindergarten, SFUSD will offer TK at Havard Early Education School and McLaren Early Education School to students who are born between November 2 and December 2, 2007.

At this time the SFUSD Educational Placement Center is accepting applications from parents who wish to enroll their child in a TK program at these two sites. SFUSD will guarantee a TK placement at one of these two schools. If these schools become fully enrolled, SFUSD will offer every eligible student a TK placement at another SFUSD Early Education school.

Next Steps for Parents interested in TK at Havard or McLaren Early Education schools:

Please submit your application for TK by May 25, 2012. Notification of assignment will be mailed out to families by June 1, 2012.

  1. I'm sure every TK family has received their letter by now. We've been left out
    of the assignment lottery and we've been given a choice of just 2 schools in the
    southeast part of the city to drive our 4 year olds too. This is just not fair
    to our kids.
    We have a group of parents organizing to try and do something about this mess
    and the group gets bigger by the day. Please contact me if you are affected or
    pass this along to other parents who may be. Thank you!
