education system even better for future generations.
Having the opportunity to discuss full-day Summer Camp
kindergarten with Hudson Superintendent Lawrence
Russell earlier this weekend, he outlined many of the
hurdles that Hudson would face with this transition.
Before you jump, remember full-day kindergarten is not
mandated and, even with this new bill, the funding at
100 percent is not carved in stone.
Currently, the New Hampshire public education
funding system is based on a grant under Adequate
Education Aid using a matrix starting at $3,600 per
student per year. Then towns and cities with low-income
households and students with special needs receive
additional support.
In todays formula, kindergarteners get a half rate of
$1,800. With the new bill, the hope is to get revenue
from the gaming form called Keno using those funds
to add $1,100 per every student in full-day kindergarten,
scheduled to start in fiscal year 2019 (July 1 of 2018).
Then, in FY 2020, the amount will be based on Keno
revenue; while it will never drop below the 2019 grant
of $1,100, the goal is for $1,800 to match the matrix
baseline per student of $3,600. Staff photos by Bruce Preston
New Hampshire Public Radio has reported that The
city of Nashua will now offer full-day kindergarten at
all of its elementary schools. Nashua joins the roughly
three quarters of school districts around the state that
offer full-day kindergarten programs. Currently there
is no support from the state other than the one half per
student Adequate Education Aid. NHPR continued
that interim superintendent of Nashua Schools Connie
Brown says, with an overall decline in enrollment, they
will be able to implement the program at no cost.
Here in Hudson, with the development of the early
learning campus, all kindergarten students go to the
Library Street School. The school has been downsized
in many areas to meet the needs of the five year olds. In
the process, the outdated kitchen was not needed for the
half-day programs and was removed. Currently, there
are 10 classes of kindergarteners, five in the morning
block and five in the afternoon session. Also, in the
Library Street building, both morning and afternoon
