Southwest Riverside Schools Kickoff 'Transitional Kindergarten' Program

A new California law requires that children be 5 before entering kindergarten—forcing schools to create a "transitional" program.

Southwest Riverside schools are offering a "transitional kindergarten" program this year despite budget cuts, according to PE.com.

The program is offered for students who are not yet 5 years old by Nov. 2—a state requirement, according to the report. 

This year, 90 students are enrolled in the program in the Temecula Valley Unified District and 130 students in the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. Lake Elsinore Unified School District "combined its transitional and regular kindergartens" and it has an enrollment of 130 students, according to PE.com.
