Vallejo Times-Herald: Vallejo district expands transitional kindergarten

By Lanz Christian Bañes/Times-Herald staff writer/

More of Vallejo’s youngest students can get a head start at school next year.

That’s when the Vallejo City Unified School District plans to double the number of transitional kindergarten classes it offers, from three to six.

Transitional kindergarten, commonly abbreviated to TK, is a new grade that comes before traditional kindergarten. Instituted this year in districts across the state, the optional grade focuses on social and emotional development to better prepare children for the academic focus of kindergarten.
