FROM THE DESK OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
I would like to share with you an important update regarding state funding for Full Day Kindergarten, which remains in jeopardy.
The State Senate, in its FY16 Budget, only provides $1 million for the Quality Full Day Kindergarten Line Item (7030-1002). This represents a 95% reduction in funding and could have a dramatic and negative impact on Full Day Kindergarten across the Commonwealth. Here in Milton, the impact could be a tuition increase of $600 per family.
The state budget now goes to the Conference Committee, a small group of both House and Senate members who will settle the differences between their respective budgets.
Here is what you can do: Contact our Milton legislative delegation and the conference committee members (listed below) and tell them to please restore funding for the quality full day kindergarten program, line item #7030-1002. Your calls and emails really do make a big difference. So, please act now!
