    Designed for those students who do not quite meet the Kindergarten age limit requirement, the Transitional and Jump Start Kindergarten programs will give these students experience in a classroom setting in order to better prepare them for Kindergarten once their age does qualify them.  Below find brief descriptions of each program.  For information on whether or not your child qualifies for either of these two programs and how to register, please visit the District's Registration Page on this website.
