Fairfield, CA —Travis USD is introducing full day kindergarten for all kindergarten students starting in the upcoming 2018-2019 school year.
The district was able to make the adjustment due to newly identified available space.
“We are so excited to be able to offer a full-day kindergarten program,” said Travis USD superintendent Pam Conklin. “The drawback has always been facilities. We are working on the necessary logistics and partnering with our union to better serve our young students and provide equity to all.”
“The community has been requesting full-day kindergarten for some time now,” Board President Riitta DeAnda said. “Educationally, it’s vital as students in full-day kindergarten are more prepared for first grade. Not just academically, but socially and emotionally, which gives them a better start.”
The program will go into effect, beginning the 2018-19 school year, at all five Travis USD elementary schools. The new full-day kindergarten schedule will match the 1st grade schedule at each school site. Transitional kindergarten will remain a half-day program.
The District will provide kindergarten bus services at the start and end of the school day, for a fee. To register for transportation services, or for more information, parents are encouraged to visit the Travis USD website at www.travisusd.org.
