What is Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Transitional Kindergarten (TK)?
TK is a public school program for 4-year-olds who turn 5 between Sept. 2 and Dec. 2. TK is designed to be a bridge between preschool and kindergarten. Children who are enrolled in transitional kindergarten can enroll in a regular kindergarten class the following year. The TK curriculum is modeled on a modified kindergarten curriculum that is age and developmentally appropriate.
In TK all subject matter is taught in Spanish, without translation. Additionally, all students receive a daily period of English language development (ELD).

Complete the online pre-enrollment through WUSD.
PLEASE NOTE: This will only be open through February 8th.
NOTE: This Aeries system is a registration system, it is not the Aeries Parent Portal for any children you might have in the Windsor District already. Your password might be different or you might need to create an account if you haven't registered a student in WUSD within the past 4 years.
Drop off your paperwork.
You may bring it to our Attendance Window by buzzing into the front gate or by dropping it off in our new secure box. (The secure box is conveniently located on the driver's side of the circular drive of our main entrance, right where the stairs come up from Starr Rd.) Our address is 9491 Starr Road. If you need assistance with making copies of your paperwork, please reach out to us during the weeks of January 19 through February 8.

*DETERMINING OUR CLASSES
To determine enrollment priority for new students, each application is first sorted based on the language balance needed for the instructional model. School administrators will determine the appropriate linguistic group for each student application.
Within each of these groups, one point is given to student applicants for each of the following:
Child of CCLA and/or WUSD District staff members
Sibling of current CCLA student(s)
Windsor Unified School District attendance area residents
Viewing each of the CCLA video presentations (STEP 1 above) on our website and answering questions on the accompanying Google Form. If you complete both, you will receive two points.
Applications are ranked based on the number of points. Applications with more points assigned are placed into classes first. Thus, applications with four points would be placed followed by applications with three points and then applications with two points, etc.
If you have questions, please contact our office at 707-837-7747 between the hours of 8am-3pm, Monday-Friday. Check our website calendar for any closures. You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
