Supt: Full-day K brings in a profit

February 6, 2014

WOONSOCKET — Nobody questions the educational value of full-day kindergarten, but the cost has been a sticking point for the Budget Commission.

Now Schools Supt. Giovanna Donoyan is poised to roll out a plan to bring back full-day kindergarten that actually results in a program surplus.

Donoyan said she and Business Manager Joseph Spagna have developed “credible numbers” showing the Woonsocket Education Department could enroll 550 children in full-day kindergarten in fiscal year 2015 and bring in $297,774 more than the program costs. The commission will get a look at the plan for the first time on Monday afternoon in Harris Hall.
