EdSource is reporting that transitional kindergarten is aiding ELL students. See their article here.
In recent years California has started a transitional kindergarten for 4 year olds with birthdays just before the age cutoff for kindergarten enrollment first attend transitional kindergarten and then kindergarten in the following year. This program has shown to be extremely beneficial for ELL students who come from Spanish speaking homes! We hope to see this type of progress continue as we continue to advocate for Latino ABC literacy!
