Transitional Kindergarten

 Dates for Enrollment and Eligibility for Transitional Kindergarten

If you live within the boundaries of the Elk Grove Unified School District and your child will turn 5 years old between September 2 – December 2, you may register him/her for that school year.

Registration for Transitional Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year begins at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, January 9, 2020 – at your home elementary school. Please see the Boundary Information page on our website to locate your home school.

To Register

Each year, registration begins at the beginning of January.

  1. On or after the start of registration, pick up a registration packet from your home school. The packet will be time-stamped and dated by the school office staff.
  2. Complete the printable online registration packet, including the required documents listed below.
  3. Return your completed registration packets by February 13, 2020.

Registration Priority and Placement – PLEASE NOTE

Although most families who turn in their registration materials by February 13, 2020 are likely to get into their home school, EGUSD is not able to guarantee placement for every child at their home school. Due to crowded conditions in the Elk Grove Unified School District, there is a possibility that your child may be reassigned to another Elk Grove Unified elementary school. Priority will be given to packets returned on time, based on the order picked up after registration begins.
