Many thanks, again, go out to the community and staff members who served on the Kindergarten Task Force. We are very excited to offer full-day kindergarten starting this Fall! Even with this lawsuit being filed against the District, we have kept our focus on our students and our classrooms, and the Board decided not to spend more money on lawyers than on kids - the lawsuit didn't have any merit, but we realized very quickly that proving our case in court would cost more than the tuition itself, and that didn't make sense for any of our stakeholders. The School Board considered dropping the full-day option to solve the lawsuit; but the Board ultimately went a step further, and voted to keep full-day and to drop the tuition charge, instead.
To be sure, we still have fiscal concerns to manage. There are looming issues (such as pension reform and school funding reform) that are threatening school budgets throughout the State. Today, though, we are redoubling our efforts to ensure that offering full-day without tuition will not impact any other District programs.
Again, I would like to thank all the members of the Task Force for their tremendous work, and to thank the countless other members of our community who have supported the District in this initiative. Our first priorities are always to offer the best programs we can while managing the District's limited resources as wisely as possible. We are looking forward to an exciting school year coming up!
