For the first time this fall, every Indiana kid can attend a full day of kindergarten because of state funding.
Vigo County says it expects increased enrollment in its full-day kindergarten program this year.
Previously, MCCSC only had enough funding for half-day kindergarten, so parents wanting to enroll their children for the full day had to pay the difference.
The law gives $80 million to full-day kindergarten, providing enough money for nearly every of-age Hoosier to attend.
The money comes from corporate tax collections found by the state last year after a software error failed to deposit it into the state’s general fund.
Parents of kindergarten students at Vigo County School Corporation schools received a refund because of a surplus of funds.
