Voorheesville board of education approves full-day kindergarten

Survey results support the plan

— Snyder said the money is there for the district already. At this point it’s just a matter of filling out the paperwork.

The parents who took the survey did so knowing the costs of providing the program will be evaluated during the preparation of the district's budget . Based on conservative estimates, the aid received could be close to $188,600, with the district saving an additional $30,000 by eliminating three mid-day bus runs.

The district would receive the aid at the end of June 2013.

"An expanded instructional day will give us an opportunity to teach early literacy and math in a less compressed period of time," said Snyder in a statement.

According to the district, the full-day will give students more of an opportunity to develop their social skills, while teachers and counselors will have more time to collaborate and deliver "more meaningful instruction, modeling, and guidance in this area.
