    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.  

    Transitional Kindergarten 

    TK is available at Ernie Pyle, Thomas Jeferson, Stephen Foster, and Washington.  Availability at sites is subject to change based on enrollment.  This is the first year of a two year Kindergarten program.
