• What is the difference between the half day and all day Kindergarten program?

Perrysburg Schools offers two choices for kindergarten: half day kindergarten or a tuition-based all day kindergarten program. Each offers programming that meets the state's academic and social standards for quality educational programming. Families may choose the program that meets their needs. Kindergarten progress is measured with the same assessments in both half day and all day kindergarten.


—Half Day Kindergarten (HDK) - Students receive instruction in math, reading, writing, social studies and science; participate in group and center time and participate in music, art, physical education and STEM class.

—All Day Kindergarten (ADK) - Students receive an extended experience. Although the same kindergarten standards are taught, students have more time for participating in centers and group work and more time to develop social skills. Students have a half hour lunch and half hour recess time.

 

• When may I select Half Day or All Day?

New families enrolling to the district during the 2021-22 school year will make their choice at their enrollment appointment.
