WOOD RIVER JCT. – An all-day kindergarten program will be offered in the Chariho Regional School District starting in the 2011-12 school year.
Unanimous approval of a plan to institute a full day of kindergarten was one of the first actions by the newly elected Chariho Regional School Committee, which voted on the item at its Nov. 23 meeting.
The board was faced with several options by the administration, one of which would have implemented the program with minimal costs by eliminating or phasing out the regular-education preschool class.
