2019-2020 Kindergarten Program Information
Westlake City Schools’ state-required minimum kindergarten program is a half-day program. An optional full-day, tuition-based program is also available.
Benefits of the Full-Day Program: Students in the full-day program work on the same curriculum standards as students in the half-day program. However, the full day program allows class time for additional practice, reinforcement, intervention and extensions. Half-day students will require these types of supports at home with parental assistance. It is important to note that throughout your child’s schooling, a partnership with parents to reinforce classroom education at home is essential and will still be necessary for full-day students. However, the full-day program provides more time in the school day to implement student-specific instruction to meet individual needs. If you have further questions about whether the full-day option is best for your child, please contact the school principal.
Half-Day Program: When registering for kindergarten with Westlake City Schools, you are automatically registering your child in the state minimum requirement program, which is a half-day program. Once a class section has reached the 25 student limit, that section maybe capped and students enrolling after that time maybe assigned to another section of that grade level. As such, the date and time of your completed registration may impact which half day section (AM or PM) your child will be assigned to attend for the upcoming school year. Academic state minimum standards are the same for the half-day program and the full-day program. As always, we partner with families and ask that parents assist with reinforcing at home what is taught in the classroom.
Tuition-Based Full-Day Kindergarten Option: Tuition is required for all students enrolled in the full-day option. Tuition for Westlake City Schools’ full-day program is $2,500 per student for the 2019-2020 school year. A $250 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration. Deposits can be paid by check, money order or cash (no credit cards for deposit). The remaining balance of the tuition can be paid by credit card through our Ezpay system, check, money-order or cash. The complete tuition must be paid in full by July 22, 2019 to participate in the full-day program. Payments by check or money order are to be made out to Westlake BOE. Note that the credit card option only exists for the tuition balance, not the deposit and requires the students ID number. Information about the Federal Lunch Program and qualifications appears at the end of this document.
