Roseville City School District to implement All Day TK & Kindergarten Programs
Roseville, CA – Roseville City School District (RCSD) announced the extension of the Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program to 5 hours per day and Kindergarten to 6 hours per day beginning in the 2023-2024 school year.
Priority enrollment for 2023-24 for all new, returning, and interdistrict transfer students, including TK and extended kindergarten programs, is now open through February 17, 2023.
“Research shows that full-day kindergarten significantly reduces disparities in academic readiness as students enter first and second grades,” said Superintendent Dirk Garcia.
“These scores are not only essential for academic success in later years, but hopefully give students a stronger social and emotional foundation, as many of these children were born a year or two before the pandemic.”

Extended-day programs encourage more independent learning, classroom participation, productivity in working with peers, and reflection than half-day kindergartens. Expanding these programs helps boost student achievement, improves students’ social and emotional skills and provides parents with greater support for their children.
Priority enrollment allows the district to prepare for staffing levels by taking a look at enrollment numbers amid the growing need and demand for high-quality academic, emotional, and social programs.
All new and returning students must register by February 17, 2023 at https://www.rcsdk8.org/student-registration.
