MOUNT VERNON — The incorporation of an all-day kindergarten option will become reality for the Mount Vernon City Schools when classes resume for the 2013-14 school year. This comes after the proposal was officially adopted Monday evening when the Mount Vernon City Schools board of education met in regular session in the Mount Vernon Middle School library.

“If you go through the research, it is pretty resounding that all-day, every-day kindergarten for youngsters provides our kindergarten students with the greatest opportunity of moving forward,” said district superintendent William Seder. “Socially and emotionally they do better; classroom teachers get more time to spend with our youngsters to identify learning challenges moving forward.”

You can read more about the decision in today’s Mount Vernon News and online this afternoon in the e-edition.
