Marlboro Schools Will Offer Full-Day Kindergarten!

Starting with the 2017-18 school year, the Marlboro School District will offer full-day kindergarten.

The Marlboro School Board approved a $1.94 million plan to renovate computer labs at four elementary schools and convert them into eight additional classrooms to accommodate the kindergarten students. The original plan to build 28 new kindergarten classrooms was rejected by voters, so the district found an alternative way to make it happen . . . to the delight of many local parents.

Superintendent Eric Hibbs said, "There will be more time spent on the individual needs of our students. The increased time will allow for a greater emphasis on social skills and a day filled with varied educational opportunities and experiences."
