Why Full-Time Kindergarten and Why Now?

We offer a full-time kindergarten program at all elementary schools at no cost to district families.  Students attend kindergarten on the regular elementary school schedule, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Please click here to watch a 4-minute video of some of our kindergarten teachers sharing their thoughts about full-time kindergarten, one of the initiatives in Superintendent Dr. Baker's Entry Plan Report to the Community.
