Full-Day Kindergarten Application Deadline Tuesday

At its Feb. 6 workshop meeting, the Board of Ed will vote on moving ahead with a third class, compromised of 10 students from the Wilson lottery and 10 from the Jefferson lottery.

Parents and guardians wishing to submit their applications for full-day, tuition-based kindergarten have until Tuesday to do so. 

The pilot program, slated to start in the 2014-2015 school year, will take place in the existing, available space in the Wilson and Jefferson Primary Centers. Two full-day classes will be made up of 20 kindergarten students who will be chosen via lottery.  

The tuition for the full-day program will be $5,500 per child, with reduced tuition charged to those who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

According to the school district, 132 applications have been received, with 67 seeking admittance to the Jefferson Primary Center and 65 to the Wilson Primary Center. 

Lottery applications, available online in both English and Spanish, are due to either Wilson or Jefferson Primary Center on Tuesday. The drawing to select the lottery winners will be held at the Board of Education offices on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. The public is invited to attend. Those selected will be notified on Thursday.

The Board of Education will vote on moving forward with a third class, made up of 10 students from the Wilson lottery and 10 students from the Jefferson lottery, at its Feb. 6 workshop meeting. If passed, the third class will be held in existing space in Wilson Primary Center.

Applications in English and in Spanish can be found here.

Too bad the mayor and her council cronies on the Board of School Estimate couldn't step up and approve universal full day K. Love the lip service to what a vibrant and successful community Summit is, but then they don't have the courage to actually invest in anything other than parking lots and garages. Yay Summit! Way to stay behind the curve.
