California Transitional Kindergarten Stipend (CTKS) Program

The primary goal of the CTKS Program is to build a skilled and stable workforce, and to provide high-quality early care and education services through Transitional Kindergarten and state-subsidized Early Care and Education Programs. The CTKS Program offers educational stipends to support specific needs of the Title V (5CCCR) Transitional Kindergarten and Preschool Teachers in Marin County. Eligible educators will receive a stipend upon completion of program requirements. Early Care and Education Teachers working in Title V Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten classrooms are eligible to participate in the CTKS Program.
