The Kindergarten Readiness Act (California Senate Bill 1381), which was passed in 2010, changed the entry date for incoming kindergartners. The legislation also established a transitional kindergarten program beginning in the 2012–2013 school year. TK is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. A child is eligible for TK if a child will have his or her fifth birthday between September 2 and December 2 of the current school year.
