Superintendent Dr. Sandra Brower will be presenting a report on the full day kindergarten pilot program at Tuesday’s Board of Education at 7:30 p.m. in the high school Lecture Hall.
The district unveiled its full day kindergarten pilot in July. The program began in September with 72 students selected through a lottery.
Parents showed concern, stating that the pilot program puts the district on a “slipper slope” as it offers a select few a better education.
Then school board President Jack Martenak said the pilot was a “good step” towards the district’s eventual goal of making full-time kindergarten available to all students.
Brower’s report will unveil the program’s progress and where the district stands moving forward.
In addition to the kindergarten pilot report, the school board will be approving a security badge system for $35,835 to be paid for with grant money.
Please return to Lacey Patch at 7:30 p.m. for live coverage.
