Washington State All Day Kindergarten

Two items today (August 4th)

1) A press release from OSPI giving information on all day kindergarten (ADK) for next year (although it says 2016/2017). You may find the information useful and/or interesting:  http://www.k12.wa.us/Communications/PressReleases2015/State-FundedFDK.aspx 

2) When a school adds ADK they also must start using the WAKids program. What’s WAKids you ask? Here is a link from OSPI that describes it:  http://www.k12.wa.us/WaKIDS/pubdocs/WhatIsWaKIDS.pdf 

However…you need to really look at the questions and data that will be gathered to see if you are comfortable….because…you can Opt-Out of the WAKids program if you want. However, there is no requirement that the school district tells you that. Please…please look closely. I have more information I can share if you contact me.
