30 person assembly pushes to move Concord kindergarten classes to full-day
CONCORD — About 30 people assembled at the Liberty Street SAU office explicitly stating how they felt the school district should move towards offering full day kindergarten to all students.
The general consensus showed that almost everyone was in favor of full-day kindergarten classes in order for the children to both learn and play, according to the Concord Monitor.
The subcommittee is studying this issue throughout the state, whether to offer a full-day kindergarten program, even if the state won't help pay for it. If the board takes their advice, it will cost nearly $1 million in staff expenses and about $200,000 in furniture and supplies. That alone would amount to a tax increase of about $83 for the owner of an average home, the paper said.
