Promise K is a free, full day early entrance kindergarten for children who are scheduled to enter kindergarten in the upcoming fall. The program is expanding from partial year to year-round starting fall 2022.

The program focuses on basic academic and social skills to help qualifying students get a jump start towards success in school. Students must live within our district boundaries and demonstrate ability and/or need.  Needs may include financial, academic or social-emotional needs and cannot be currently enrolled in another early learning program.   Applications of students are reviewed to determine eligibility.  Schools sites are finalized based on enrollment.

Program dates and times, 2022-2023:

We are expanding Promise Kindergarten to year-round starting fall 2022.  Family conferences will occur during the first week of school and the first full day of Promise K is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2022.

Promise K students attend daily from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and follow the district calendar; the last day of the 2022-23 school year is currently scheduled for June 16, 2023.
