All-Day K for Lawrence?

The district debates a plan to enact all-day K. Currently 15 out of the district’s 17 buildings have all day, partial day classes. (See numbers, in PDF, from the KSDE.)

The move would cost local taxpayers $1 million per year. If implemented statewide, the move would add another $75 million to public obligations. Currently, the state gives districts money for half-day enrollment. Governor Sebelius would like to phase in support for all-day classes.

The superintendent says that as for USD 487, it’s a matter of priorities:  “For us, it’s a facilities issue, in some respect. For us, it’s mostly a general fund issue. We’ve chosen to spend money in other areas and tried to keep our costs down.”
