Cheshire Board of Education members celebrated the expected implementation of full-day kindergarten for next fall during their meeting Thursday night.
Board Member Sandra Pavano even announced, “We’ve made it.”
The next step for full-day is to have parents enroll their children into the program so that the School District can generate concrete numbers as to how many students will be attending. According to Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Scott Detrick, kindergarteners in Chapman School and Norton School districts will attend their neighborhood school. Students in the Doolittle School district will attend Darcey School, while the fate of those residing near Highland School is still to be determined.
Two School District employees were recognized for their service during the meeting. Director of Food and Nutrition Services Madeline Diker received the School Nutrition Association’s “Outstanding Food Director of the Year” award and Director of Management Services Vincent Masciana was honored with the “Rising Star” award from the Connecticut Association of School Business Officials.
