The Summit Board of Education will vote on instituting a paid, full-day kindergarten to begin September 2014 at its regular meeting held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Jefferson Primary Center.
The proposed program would accommodate 40 students who would be chosen by lottery. One class of 20 would be taught in an existing space at the Wilson Primary Center, while the second class of 20 would attend Jefferson Primary, which also has a space available.
As per the proposal, parents would pay $5,500 per child annually. That fee would cover the cost for 25 percent of parents who can’t afford to the program.
The Board agenda also includes a presentation on safety and security.
