Instructional Minutes

Fullerton School District kindergarten classes follow the Early Primary Program requirements, pursuant to Education Code 8970-8974.  There are three early primary programs in our school district: Kindergarten, Extended Day Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten.  All three programs exceed California’s minimum number of instructional minutes per week/year.  Transitional Kindergarten students attend school for fewer minutes than Extended Day Kindergarten students, which is allowable through a waiving of Education Code Section 370202(a).  It has been our experience that a half-day Transitional Kindergarten program provides the length of time needed for our students to adjust comfortably to the public school setting.  If you should have any questions regarding our Early Primary Programs, please contact Trang Lai at trang_lai@myfsd.org or 714-447-2878.
