What is transitional kindergarten (TK)?
A transitional kindergarten is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. Pursuant to law, (EC 48000[c]), a child is eligible for transitional kindergarten if a child will have his or her fifth birthday:

For the 2013–14 school year, on or after Oct. 2 but before Dec 2, 2008
For the 2014–15 school year, on or after Sept. 1 but before Dec 2, 2009
For the 2015–16 school year and thereafter, on or after Sept. 1
