School Programs

Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten (TK) enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year begins on January 10, 2018. Parents of students who turn 5 years old between September 2 and December 2, 2018, may choose to register for TK. Currently, our TK students attend school daily on a modified schedule at one of seven district locations. Registration in the TK program is optional and transportation is not provided. 

Open Enrollment does not apply to Transitional Kindergarten students, as the SCUSD Open Enrollment policy applies to K-12 students only. Register your student at their home school and the child will be placed in one of the TK schools, based on availability. Please see below the current schools in Santa Clara Unified School District that offer a TK program:

  • Braly Elementary School
  • Briarwood Elementary School
  • Haman Elementary School
  • Montague Elementary School
  • Pomeroy Elementary School
  • Scott Lane Elementary School
  • Sutter Elementary School

Unfortunately, due to limited space, we cannot guarantee placement at a specific school.

For Your Reference in the 2018-2019 School Year:   

  • Students Born: 9/2/2013-12/2/2013
    Eligible for TK in 2018-2019
  • Students Born: 9/2/2012-9/1/2013
    Eligible for Kindergarten in 2018-2019
  • Students Born: 9/2/2013 and later
    Eligible for Kindergarten in 2019-2020

Why has the State made this change?

School isn’t just about developing a child’s intellectual capabilities; there are emotional, social, and physical factors to consider. Allowing an extra year for our young five-year-olds provides an opportunity for students to grow in these areas before facing the rigor of the academic world.

What options do I have for my child since they are not eligible for Kindergarten?

  • Register at your home school for our Transitional Kindergarten program offered at select satellite sites throughout the district.
  • Stay or enroll in a private or public preschool.
  • Spend another year in the home environment.

Boys and Girls Club

Founded in 1944, BGCSV is a non-profit youth development organization that offers innovative and effective afterschool and summer enrichment programs primarily for low income, at-risk Santa Clara County youth ages 6-18 years. BGCSV serves approximately 3,000 regular members at 9 Clubhouse locations in San Jose and Morgan Hill. The majority of the youth we serve are living in economically depressed, high crime neighborhoods with an absence of adult role models or mentors.

Silicon Valley's future prosperity is dependent upon growing a middle-class workforce ready to meet the global demands of a knowledge-based economy. We know that the path to building our future workforce is preparing local youth with the skills required to succeed in college and a career. We aim to help close the opportunity gap to achieve greater economic, political, and social equality among disadvantaged youth and the communities in which they live.

BGCSV takes a holistic approach to creating well-rounded, confident, and healthy youth and aims to provide programs and services that speak to all aspects of a child's development. To achieve these goals, comprehensive curricula are provided within the following Core Enrichment Program Areas that address the academic, linguistic and cognitive growth, and emotional and social needs of youth. Core Program Areas are age and developmentally appropriate; are supportive of the diversity of children and families served, including culture and language; and are operationally efficient and effective.
