Transitional Kindergarten Dates for 2023-2024 School Year 

As you may know, the state of California has mandated that Transitional Kindergarten be offered in all public schools.  Beginning before the 2021-2022 school year, school districts had to offer Transitional Kindergarten to eligible students based on birthdays that were expanded from September 2 to December 2. For the 2024-25 school year, Woodside School's Transitional Kindergarten will be available to all students who turn four by September 1.   

Although the Woodside School District has offered a Transitional Kindergarten program for many years before the state mandate came into play, like many other districts, we have moved the enrollment dates on a year-to-year basis.  Some districts have gone “all in” and are already running a full Transitional Kindergarten program that allows four-year-olds born before September 1 to attend.  Woodside waited to make the full transition to the September 1 birthday expansion, for a variety of reasons — including the staffing costs from additional Transitional Kindergarten classrooms due to increased enrollment, the lack of proper facilities for additional Transitional Kindergarten classrooms, and the fact that as a basic aid school district, the Transitional Kindergarten program remains unfunded by the state of California. 

The Board of Trustees has decided to accelerate the full implementation timeline for the Transitional Kindergarten enrollment birthdate for the 2023-2024 school year for all four-year-olds born before September 1 will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten.
