The Vallejo school board will hold a public hearing Wednesday about the adoption of a transitional kindergarten curriculum.
Transitional kindergarten, often abbreviated as “TK,” is a new grade the Vallejo City Unified School District is offering. It precedes traditional kindergarten, and is designed to help children who might not be ready for traditional kindergarten.
Transitional kindergarten is a state mandate, though when the school board voted to adopt the new grade, lawmakers were still wrangling on whether to follow Gov. Jerry Brown’s lead and nix the requirement.
