Solana Beach School District Transitional Kindergarten Program
This change in the Education Code created the Transitional Kindergarten program, a two-year kindergarten experience for students. Students in this program learn oral language development, pre-literacy skills, early math skills, large and small motor skills, development and enhancement of appropriate social and emotional skills, and self-regulation skills that promote success in school.
The Solana Beach School District first offered Transitional Kindergarten in the 2012-2013 school year. Transitional Kindergarten in our district is a full-day class that begins and ends on the same schedule as the other Kindergarten classes offered at the school site. Transitional Kindergarten teachers have a California teaching credential and experience with primary grade instruction.
The district will continue the program in the 2013-14 school year with one class at Solana Vista School and one at Carmel Creek School. Please note:
Parents interested in Transitional Kindergarten may contact the school in their residence area for more information and registration.
