Concord, N.H. (March 19, 2018) – The Concord School Board on Monday evening unanimously approved a budget that expands kindergarten to a full day across the city.
Registration for fall full-day kindergarten classes has already begun.
“Giving Concord’s children access to a full day of kindergarten is a smart investment in the future of the city. It will help not only the children, but the city’s workforce and economy,” said Kris Perry, President of Save the Children Action Network (SCAN). “I am grateful to members of the Concord School Board for prioritizing children with their votes.”
In November 2017, SCAN endorsed and helped elect Liza Poinier and Chuck Crush to the Concord School Board because of their public support for full-day kindergarten. Over the last year, SCAN has been actively engaged in the community to help build awareness for the program, which has broad support.
