For the purpose of school attendance, legislation called the Allen Bill recognizes children whose parents work within District boundaries as TCUSD residents. That means if you work for a business located within District attendance boundaries, your children may be able to attend schools located within the Temple City Unified School District.
Additionally, students enrolled in the District on the basis of parent/guardian employment are considered permanent residents and shall not be required to reapply for enrollment in subsequent years. However, each year families must provide proof of employment within the TCUSD attendance boundaries.
TCUSD is offering a full-day kindergarten program at La Rosa Elementary School beginning on September 3rd. At this program, students will benefit from the extension of their school day from 3½ hours to 6 hours.
According to TCUSD officials in charge of the newly expanded program, full-day kindergarten contributes to school readiness, leads to higher academic achievement, improves student attendance, supports literacy and language development, and benefits children socially and emotionally.
Two-thirds of U.S. students attend full-day kindergarten programs, and statistics show that 43% of California kindergartners and 74% of Los Angeles County kindergartners attend full-day programs.
District permits are to be approved on a space-available basis.
