Castro Valley Unified School District is excited to welcome you to the start of your student's educational career as a Transitional Kindergarten (TK) or Kindergarten (K) student.
Transitional Kindergarten is a program available to those students turning five from September 2nd to April 2nd of 2024. TK classes are currently offered at Independent Elementary (serving Independent, Jensen, Palomares, and Vannoy), Castro Valley Elementary (serving CVE, Marshall, and Proctor), and Stanton Elementary (serving Stanton and Chabot).
The TK and Kindergarten Enrollment Timeline for the 2022-2023 School Year is as follows:
TK and K "priority" enrollment starts on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 and concludes on Wednesday, February 17, 2023. Any students enrolling in grades TK and K after February 17, 2023 would not receive sibling priority and may not have residence/neighborhood priority. Please note that we have periodically experienced impacted enrollment for Kindergarten at various schools. Those students not assigned a space in their neighborhood school will be diverted to the next closest available school and will be automatically placed on the waitlist for their neighborhood school.
