FAQ on Full-Day

  • Q: Why does Fremont School District 79 charge for full-day kindergarten?
    A: Fremont School District 79 is required to offer a half-day kindergarten program. The district designed a tuition-based, full-day kindergarten program based on parent requests for a full day option. The district charges tuition for the program in order to maintain a balanced budget. The FSD79 Board of Education and its constituents values fiscal responsibility. Launching a full-day kindergarten program without tuition would cost the district approximately $350,000. With Illinois’ current financial status and the state charter school that diverts 87 percent of the district's state funding to that site, FSD79 would be deficit spending over its current budget if it extended the kindergarten day without a tuition component. FSD79 continues to seek alternative funding to support its programs.

    Q: How do students enroll in full-day kindergarten?
    A: Parents may enroll their children into full-day kindergarten by going through the kindergarten registration process. Parents can learn more about kindergarten registration during the kindergarten registration night, which typically occurs in February.

    Q: If parents have questions about full-day kindergarten, who can they contact?
    A: Please contact Stefan Ladenburger, K-5 principal, at sladenburger@fsd79.org or call him at 847-388-3700.
