Though Templeton Unified School District schools are currently operating via distance learning, and therefore physically closed to the public, our staff is hard at work behind the scenes beginning our preparation for the 2020/21 school year. TUSD resident students who are enrolled and attending Templeton schools through distance learning at this time will roll forward into the new school year as they would otherwise. If your child is currently attending on an interdistrict transfer (IDT), we will be reviewing our records to ensure your transfer is valid for the 2020/21 school year. If your transfer will expire this year, or has already expired, please contact your district of residence for a new release to avoid any delay in placement in class(es) for the fall.

New student enrollment for the 2020/2021 school year is well under way with enrollment now taking place via email at all sites. Please refer to the section below for information regarding your child’s specific grade/school.

The Kindergarten Readiness Act specifies children must be five years of age by September 1, 2020 to be eligible for kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year. Children whose fifth birthday falls between September 2, 2020 and December 2, 2020 will be enrolled in Transitional Kindergarten. Transitional Kindergarten is the first year of a two-year program who qualify based on the Kindergarten Readiness Act. Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students must meet the same requirements, including providing proof of residency, birth certificate and immunizations current for school entry.

Class placement is based on many factors. AM/PM class preference will be considered but cannot be guaranteed. Letters confirming AM/PM placement will be mailed at the end June for all students whose online registration is complete, including the current immunization record which meets all of the requirements for school entry.

Transitional Kindergarten students must meet the same requirements as traditional Kindergarten students, including proof of residency, birth certificate and immunizations current for school entry. TK is PM only and is conditioned on space available.
