For some of the youngest Travis Unified students and their families, it will be a major change.
The district, which includes two Vacaville elementary schools, will offer full-day kindergarten for all kindergarten students starting in the 2018-2019 school year, which begins in August.
The district was able to make the adjustment due to newly available classroom space, district officials said in a press release.
“We are so excited to be able to offer a full-day kindergarten program,” said Pam Conklin, the district superintendent. “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.”
Governing board President Riitta De Anda noted many Travis parents had longed for the change.
