Avon to offer full time Kindergarten in 2010-2011 School Year

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.
