Transitional Kindergarten (TK) Lottery

The TK Lottery for the 2024-25 school year opened on Feb. 12, 2024 and will run through March 15, 2024. 

State law requires school districts to offer TK, or an extra year of kindergarten, giving students two years to develop the essential skills to excel academically and socially in elementary school. Research suggests that starting kindergarten at an older age can boost children’s test scores, and such students are less likely to be retained or placed in special education.
