West Clermont Schools ask to delay full day kindergarten

AMELIA (FOX 19) - By next school year, all Ohio school districts are required to offer all-day kindergarten in addition to half-day programs.

This week, the West Clermont school board approved a request to delay offering all-day kindergarten and stick with half-day due to budget concerns.

The West Clermont school board said it doesn't have the money right now to offer all-day kindergarten in the 2010-11 school year.

Now the board just has to wait and see what the state says about the request.

Neighboring Batavia and New Richmond districts already have all day kindergarten in place.
