Report and Recommendations of the Committee on the Full-Day Kindergarten.
Bay Shore Union Free School District, NY.
The charge of the Full Day Kindergarten Committee of the Bay Shore Union Free School District was to determine whether Bay Shore schools should initiate a full day kindergarten or continue with the present half day program. Five methods were used to analyze the potential of the full day program: (1) full day kindergarten visitations, (2) faculty survey, (3) review of research, (4) examination of current academic status of Bay Shore second graders, and (5) workshop attendance by committee members. Findings indicated that implementation of a full day program would improve educational opportunity. The committee recommended that the full day program begin in September 1984 and that a second committee be established to develop a meaningful full day kindergarten program. (BJD)
