edit.. Yes ive taked with the princepal and teachers about my concerns twice this year already
This is my second kid in this school, our first k experience was fantastic, we were so excited. But this year has royally sucked!
There are only 12 1/2 day kids and they decided to put them in the same class as the full day. Full day is $300/mo. We cant swing that. Anyway it came out early that they were doing 2x the math and reading time with the full day kids after years of full day being academic in the am and specials and science and ss in the pm. But this year the 1/2 days gets 1/2. Also not just mine but many from what I hear from parents are feeling very much less than the full day kids as the keep pulling the 6 1/2 days kids in each class away and doing things cause the dont run the schedule to do the academics with everyone at once. My kid and others have all year begged to be full day. Mine has even saved his tooth money in hopes of going all day. This was never ever an issue with the seperate 1/2 day class. Now in jan they want to change the 1/2 day schedule to 2 fill days, a 1/2 day and then a 4 day weekend. Why because it would be easier for them not to deal with the split schedule. But then the would be getting the specials and extras of full day and loosing even more time at reading and math instruction! I so wish we would have choiced out the first week. But I think at this point it would cause more harm than good to my kid :(
Thoughts? Has anyone ever heard of this?
