DISTRICT 101 BOARD OF EDUCATION
FULL-DAY KINDERGARTEN UPDATE - OCTOBER 6, 2015
The District 101 (“D101”) Board of Education will hold a special meeting on in the McClure Junior High School library to discuss potential adjustments to the current D101 kindergarten program, including the potential for either extended-day kindergarten (“EDK”) or optional full-day kindergarten (“FDK”).
During the Board’s September 28, 2015 meeting, the Education Committee presented its evaluation of D101’s current HDK program and considerations relating to EDK and optional FDK. That presentation may be accessed at http://goo.gl/KZl9bp.
The Board’s discussion will include kindergarten-specific considerations as well as considerations regarding the effect(s) that any kindergarten-related changes would have on the entire elementary schools (e.g., related to space).
The Board has confirmed that any adjustment to the current kindergarten program would not result in the elimination of such programs as music, art, or advanced math. The Board has asked the Administration to bring elementary building plans to the meeting to illustrate whether potential adjustments to the kindergarten program would result in location changes to any currently offered programs and, if so, where such programs would be relocated. The Board has also asked for additional information regarding budgetary considerations.
