BCSC Ready For Effects Of Full-Day Kindergarten

Because BCSC already offers full-day kindergarten for a fee, it is prepared for legislation calling for full-day kindergarten across the state.

Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation officials say they are studying how they will be affected by recent legislation calling for full-day kindergarten throughout Indiana. State legislators recently passed measures that will allocate $33.5 million for 2008 and $58.5 million for 2009 to fund FDK Indiana.

BCSC superintendent John Quick says the corporation has been offering full-day kindergarten for several years. He says about half of BCSC students enrolled in kindergarten attend for a full day, an option that requires a fee. Quick says that fee could be as little as $451 per student if everyone chooses to participate, but he doesn’t think that will happen.

By already offering full-day kindergarten, Quick says the corporation will have an easier time planning a broader program. He says BCSC would like to make full-day kindergarten affordable and accessible to as many students as possible.
