Students admitted at ages 4-6 years need these immunizations:
A pre-kindergarten physical by a physician is also recommended and will satisfy the state’s requirement for a physical examination within 18 months prior to entering first grade.
Children entering public school for the first time, in transitional kindergarten, kindergarten or first grade, must show proof of a dental examination by a licensed dental professional by May 31st of the first school year. Oral health evaluations with documentation that occurred within the 12 months prior to school entry also meet this requirement.
At PUSD, transitional kindergarten (TK) is a full day, year long kindergarten program that uses a distinct TK curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. Senate Bill (SB) 858 establishes the intent that TK curriculum be aligned to the California Preschool Learning Foundations and California Preschool Curriculum Frameworks developed by the CDE.
Since school is mandatory for six year old students, parents and guardians of six year old students must enroll their children in school (Education Code Section 48200). Admission of age-eligible children must occur at the beginning of the school year or whenever the students move into the school district.
Continuance is defined as more than one school year in kindergarten. EC Section 48011 requires a child who has completed a year of kindergarten to be promoted to first grade, unless the parent or guardian and the district agree that the child may continue in kindergarten not more than one additional school year.
A parent/guardian who agrees their child is to continue in kindergarten must sign the Kindergarten Continuance Form.
