DEXTER LEADER: Dexter Community Schools switches to full-day kindergarten with half-day option
There will be an informational meeting for parents at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 at Cornerstone Elementary School, 7480 Dan Hoey Road.
Superintendent Mary Marshall told AnnArbor.com she believes this switch is in the best interest of students and while the district’s budget is tight, the all-day program is “important so we will have to make that an expense we accommodate for.”
“We are very fortunate and have had some wise budgeting in the past few years, so we do have a fund balance — and some undesignated fund balance — for our district,” she said, adding the undesignated funds total about $1.8 million right now.
