PreK and Kindergarten Task Force Report

Pre-K and Kindergarten Task Force Report
The school board will take action on the administrative proposal on May 22

 

A superintendent’s task force has recently studied and developed recommendations regarding kindergarten registration and overflow practices (sending students to schools other than their neighborhood school due to capacity) that also encompass plans for the future needs of pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.

 

The task force’s report to Superintendent Beck includes several recommendations that would require additional study for feasibility.

 

 

The school board meeting on Monday, May included a district recommendation to create a lottery system to determine kindergarten placement for those schools where the number of incoming kindergarten students is greater than classroom capacity.

 

This proposal was presented as an information item for school board consideration and discussion.

 

A decision on a revised recommendation is expected by the School Board at its meeting on Monday, May 22.
