     Interdistrict Transfers

The Pacifica School District Governing Board recognizes that students who reside in one district may choose to attend school in another district and that such choices are made for a variety of reasons. Upon request by students' parents/guardians, the Superintendent or designee may approve interdistrict attendance permits with other districts on a case-by-case basis to meet individual student needs.

   Transitional Kindergarten

Children who turn 5 years of age between September 2 and December 2, 2014 are eligible to enroll in the Transitional Kindergarten Program for the 2014/2015 school year. Transitional kindergarten (TK) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten program that uses a modified curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate. TK bridges the gap between California Preschool Learning Foundations and Kindergarten Standards, giving children more time for hands-on, interactive learning. Enrollment packets are available at K-5, K-8 schools and the District Office.
