Transitional kindergarten funding secure
By Catherine Atkin
President, Preschool California
On March 2, School Services released a follow-up bulletin on TK to confirm the full funding message within Gov. Brown’s trailer bill language. Under current law or the governor’s proposal, school districts will collect full funding for TK.
Districts should keep in mind that the Kindergarten Readiness Act is still law, requiring each district to offer TK in the fall. Preschool California and the Save Kindergarten Coalition hope that school districts uncertain about TK will join the more than 120 California school districts moving forward with TK.
