Extended Day Kindergarten Update: A resolution to establish an Early Primary Program was approved at the May 11, 2015 OUSD Board Meeting. The Resolution includes criteria for ensuring that an extended day includes ample opportunities for both active and quiet activities within an integrated, experiential, and developmentally appropriate educational program throughout the school day. The longer Kindergarten day will include lunch/recess and 55 additional classroom minutes, going from 3.5 hours to 5.1 hours. At this time, the district is continuing to plan for implementation of an Extended Day Kindergarten schedule (EDK) to begin in August 2015.
