Delegate Comstock Introduces Legislation to Fund All Day Kindergarten for Fairfax County Schools


Richmond, VA – Delegate Barbara Comstock introduced a budget amendment that would allow Fairfax County Schools to reprogram any portion of its’ eligible FY 2012 Virginia Preschool Initiative funds toward completing all-day kindergarten in the 37 schools that do not provide all-day kindergarten.

Delegate Comstock issued the following statement about the Budget Amendment:

“Our families are paying for all-day kindergarten but they aren’t receiving it in our district.  This is simply unfair and is essentially a kindergarten tax. This budget amendment would allow Fairfax County schools to utilize Pre-K funds for use for all day kindergarten. It will also allow schools to reprogram funds towards the 37 schools that currently do not offer all day kindergarten.”
