From the Avon School Corporation website:
Avon Schools to Offer Full-Day Kindergarten
Avon Community School Corporation plans to offer a tuition-based full-day kindergarten
at each of its elementary schools beginning Fall 2010. In addition, mid-day busing
routes will be discontinued for kindergarteners. ACSC Superintendent, Dr. Timothy Ogle
explains, “These changes in our kindergarten model are part of our overall strategic plan.
Although we can’t make any promises, we want to provide our kindergarten parents the options
they’ve requested. By eliminating our mid-day busing routes, parents will be able to
specify their preference of morning, afternoon, or full-day kindergarten.” Final placement
will be determined by lottery.
Full-day kindergarten tuition (not including lunch and textbooks) will be $2150/year (approximately
$12/day). As before, there is no charge for the half-day kindergarten program.
Director of Elementary Education, Maryanne McMahon, says “For the last three years
ACSC has provided a full-day program from students who benefitted from an academic
boost. This program will continue as usual.”
Kindergarten Registration packets will be available beginning April 12, 2010 at all Avon
elementary schools as well as the Administration Center. The Kindergarten Registration and
Assessment Session is scheduled for Friday, May 14, 2010. Please see http://www.avon-schools.org
under Elementary Redistricting to review the elementary boundaries. Additional information
regarding 2010-2011 Kindergarten will be available soon on each schools’ website.
