Transitional Kindergarten

Transitional Kindergarten update 2/11/2015

Enrollment at Westwood Charter has been on the rise for several years. In the 2014 – 2015 school year, to
accommodate all Westwood children, we created a Transitional Kindergarten/Kindergarten
classroom in one section of our school library. The district worked hard to
determine the best possible option for our Transitional Kindergarten children
within our facility’s capacity, including restoring the library so that all children at
Westwood have access to the rich resources provided by our community. Input has been
received by Board Member Steve Zimmer, ESC West Superintendent Cheryl Hildreth,
District leaders, and principals at the affected schools.

In the 2015 – 2016 school year it was decided that Westwood house students in Kindergarten
through fifth grade. Westwood students who are eligible for Transitional Kindergarten will
be provided classroom space at Nora Sterry Elementary.

Thank you for your understanding and support,
