DCE studies 4 year old Kindergarten

Posted:

D.C. Everest school leaders are studying their options for starting up 4 year old Kindergarten classes.

District Superintendent Kristine Gilmore says school board members are looking into the idea. "During the summer months, they will meet with licensed pre-school providers in our area to see what kind of collaborative effort can be set up."

The big issue is funding. Gilmore estimates it would cost about one million dollars to start up a 4-K program. She says school board members want the program but want to implement it without increasing taxes.

No decisions are expected until the end of the summer.
