TK classrooms are clustered together at specific school sites due to the small number of students who fit the enrollment criteria. TK enrollment is available at all schools, however students may be sent to a TK cluster at another school site. All students would register at their homeschool and be notified if they will be attending a cluster at a neighboring partner school. If they are sent to a partner school, transportation will be provided.  
For the 2021-2022 school year, schools with TK clusters on their campuses will be the following - 
Bayside (will host TK from Central)
Emory (will host TK from Oneonta)
Mendoza (will host TK from Berry)
Nicoloff (will host TK as needed)
Pence (will host TK from Sunnyslope)
Imperial Beach Charter School and Nestor Language Academy Charter have TK on their campuses and are not included in the clusters.
Please note that TK clusters may change depending on enrollment. Space and staffing are factors that must be taken into consideration.
