Beginning in school year 2012-2013  the Moraga School District will implement changes to the enrollment of students for Kindergarten and eligibility for a Transitional Kindergarten program as required by the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010.

The goals and objective of this new legislation is to change the date of entry into Kindergarten.  The following provides information related to the age of students enrolling in Kindergarten:

  • School Year 2012-2013  - Must be 5 years old on or before November 1st
  • School Year 2013-2014  - Must be 5 years old on or before October 1st
  • School Year 2014-2015  - Must be 5 years old on or before September 1st

Every year thereafter a child must be 5 years old by September 1st to enroll in Kindergarten. 

Transitional Kindergarten 

This legislation also requires all California school districts to provide a Transitional Kindergarten program so that children who will be affected by this change -- those with birthdays between September and December -- will have an opportunity to continue building their skills and abilities.  Their time in Transitional Kindergarten will help them to succeed in Kindergarten, become leaders in the classroom and confidently navigate the school day routine.

Students are eligible for Transitional Kindergarten per the following criteria:

  • School Year 2012-2013     5th Birthday     11/02 -- 12/02
  • School Year 2013-2014     5th Birthday     10/02 -- 12/02
  • School Year 2014-2015     5th Birthday       9/02 -- 12/02

Every year thereafter the 5th birthday must fall between 9/02 and 12/02

More information about Kindergarten enrollment is availabe on the California Department of Education website .
