Tuition-Based Full Time Kindergarten

This every-day option currently is available at Iowa, Lake Ridge, Owyhee and Ronald Reagan elementary schools. The number of participating schools is determined each year based on parent interest, but enrollment is open to all district students. Parents living outside the school boundaries will need to provide transportation.

Tuition for the every-day,  full-day option is $250 per month. Parents who register by June 15 and sign up for automatic payment will receive a monthly discount. A discount also is available to parents who pay for the full year up front. An IDeal College Savings Program can now be used to pay for full-time kindergarten tuition.

Documents needed to register for either the traditional or full-day option include the child’s birth certificate, immunization records and proof of residence, such as a utility bill.
