WOONSOCKET â€” 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 â€ścredible numbersâ€ť 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.
