TK Professional Development Modules

Professional development modules for Transitional Kindergarten (TK) were developed through a collaboration of county offices of education with funding from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. The TK modules provide an overview of The Alignment of the California Preschool Learning Foundations with Key Early Education Resources (CDE, 2012) and include strategies and resources to support the implementation of transitional kindergarten.
