Barona Indian Charter School invests in children as our future: providing K-8 students with a small, nurturing educational environment, that is culturally rich, academically rigorous, and intellectually stimulating.


TK Eligibility for Enrollment

  • In 2022–23, children are eligible for TK if they turn 5 years old between September 2 and February 2*,

  • In 2023–24, children are eligible for TK if they turn 5 between September 2 and April 2*,

  • In 2024–25, children are eligible for TK if they turn 5 between September 2 and June 2*,

  • In 2025–26, LEAs are required to make TK available to all children who will have their fourth birthday by September 1* of the school year.

*Inclusive of these dates

However, pursuant to EC Section 48000(c)(2)(A), a school district or charter school may, at any time during a school year (including at the beginning of the school year) admit a child to a TK program who will have his or her fifth birthday after the TK eligibility cut-off dates listed above, but during that same school year, with the approval of the parent or guardian, if the governing board of the school district or the governing body of the charter school determines that the admittance is in the best interests of the child and the parent or guardian is given information regarding the advantages and disadvantages and any other explanatory information about the effect of this early admittance. Average Daily Attendance (ADA) can be claimed for these students once they attain the age of five (EC Section 48000(c)(2)(B)).
