With all-day kindergarten, West Chicago students better prepared to meet Common Core
WEST CHICAGO – In an effort to keep up with rising expectations for kindergartners, West Chicago Elementary School District 33 is piloting an all-day kindergarten program at Gary Elementary School this year, with hopes of extending it to other schools in the future.
Full-day kindergarten had been a dream in the district for several years and became part of the district’s Strategic Plan in 2011, said Gina Steinbrecher, District 33 community relations specialist. With the expansion of Leman Middle School of West Chicago complete, the space to match the need opened up.
Sixth-graders moved from District 33 elementary schools into the middle school this year, creating room at Gary School to house more kindergartners at the same time as part of a full-day program.
