D91 is exploring the idea of piloting an all-day kindergarten program in some elementary schools this fall. The first step is to gauge parent interest so please take a minute to complete this short survey, which will be open through noon May 8.
Based on the survey results, the district will determine whether all-day kindergarten is feasible and where the programs might be located. This would be a fee-based program, with rates of about $275 a month.
If there is enough interest, the Board of Trustees will consider a recommendation on May 9. If the board approves the plan, registrations will begin in mid May and parents will be notified about where programs would be located before the end of the school year. Want more information? See the All Day Kindergarten FAQs. Questions? Send them to us.
