CA legislation has updated the age requirements for students who are entering transitional kindergarten. By the 2025-2026 school year, students turning 4 by September 1st will be offered Universal Transitional Kindergarten at all sites.

SDUSD began the implementation of UTK during the 2021-2022 school year by offering the program in 56 of our elementary sites. Currently, SDUSD is working to identify additional sites to further expand UTK, until all elementary sites are included. However, to date only 56 sites are offering UTK. Please make your selections with the consideration that not all elementary sites will offer UTK.
It's possible that UTK will still only be offered at the current 56 sites. For a list of current sites offering UTK, please click here: UTK Sites

TK is offered at almost every elementary school. Sites that do not offer TK will not be listed as an option on the Choice application. Students must turn 5 between September 2 - December 2 to enroll in TK.
