MCCSC Prepares For Full-day Kindergarten With Grant Application

MCCSC could get as much as $665 dollars for each of its 550 expected kindergarten students. The corporation won't know until October how much money it will get.

The Monroe County Community School Corporation is one of 263 school districts around the state applying for grant money to fund full-day kindergarten. MCCSC Director of Assessment and School Operations Michael Shipman says school corporations were asked to estimate how many students would be participating in full-day kindergarten. He says based on the 550 expected in MCCSC, the corporation could get as much as 665 dollars per student. Shipman says MCCSC is excited to offer full-day kindergarten at a reduced rate.

Shipman says the corporation won’t know for sure how much they’ll receive until October, and will continue to charge a fee until January, when charges for full-day kindergarten will be reduced. The General Assembly included $92 million in the budget to go toward full-day kindergarten across the state.
