Questions & Answers - Full-Day Kindergarten

When will full-day kindergarten begin in WICSD?

  Full-day kindergarten will begin in September 2016. 

Students who will be 5 years of age on or before December 1, 2016 are eligible for kindergarten in September 2016. There is information on the registration process here.  

Will there be additional transportation costs associated with full-day kindergarten?   As part of our prior planning for the costs associated with full-day kindergarten, we included money from the mid-day run as a cost reduction.  We will not need this run since the kindergarteners will be in a full-day session and we are projecting to be able to utilize existing morning and afternoon bus capacity to absorb most of these students. The expense for the noon run in 2014-15 was $72,500.  We'll know more in our fall/winter budget development how much savings we can project in this area.
