The Arlington School District is making the switch to all-day kindergarten. Superintendent Kevin Haught tells the Courier the move will help the district compete better with other districts. Haught says parents were sending their kids to other schools that offered all-day kindergarten. They would then reenroll them in Arlington for first grade.
The school district will hire another teacher as a result.
Five of Hancock County’s eight school districts now offer all-day kindergarten.
