New all-day kindergarten begins statewide this year

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Kindergartners are starting school soon, and a lot of kids will be starting a much different program compared to previous years.

Across the state, kindergartners will be in an all-day program this year, instead of the usual half-day program.

This means kindergarten students will be in the classroom from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., just like the older students.

Portland Public Schools begin today, and other districts will be starting school in the next few weeks.

All public schools will offer free full-day kindergarten this fall because the program is statewide.
