The District offers VPK during the school year primarily as a VPK/Enrichment Program using multiple funding stream opportunities. The VPK/Enrichment program is currently located in 28 elementary schools as either a VPK/Parent Fee Enrichment Program or a VPK/Title I Enrichment Program.
In these two models, VPK supports 3 free instructional hours (typically 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.) and all students in the VPK program are eligible to participate in the enrichment portion of the day (11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.). The enrichment portion of the day is funded either by parent fees or by Title I Administration.
The morning VPK program and the afternoon enrichment program create a seamless 6-hour day. The Department of Afterschool Programming provides afterschool services at some school sites.
