As you start up your TK program, you will need to address the components of program operation in your district with TK in mind, including areas like enrollment and registration, class configuration and scheduling, facilities and transportation, and more. Having a solid planning team on your side will help your district consider these aspects of designing a successful TK program for the young learners in your area.
