GREENFIELD — The Greenfield-Central School Board has voted to continue its full-day kindergarten program next year with the hope the state will also continue to fund it.
The corporation has offered a full-day option since 2007, but when additional state funding increased for the 2012-13 school year, school officials decided to discontinue the half-day option and offer only full-day kindergarten.
Statewide, the increase in funding resulted in 79,110 students enrolling in full-day kindergarten programs – up from 66,401 last year.
G-C was among the schools that showed a significant jump, from 88 full-time kindergarten students in 2011 to 339 this year.
