While kindergarten for most children in CCSD will start on July 31, the Early Kindergarten program will allow participants to get a jump on their prerequisite skills, build relationships earlier with teacher and form tighter bonds with their classrooms.

“Our focus is on academic preparedness,” Superintendent Chris Ragsdale said in a news release. “Our job is to make sure we move students from kindergarten through first grade. We are making sure the students who are coming to Early Kindergarten are getting access to early learning.”

The students are expected to graduate from kindergarten in May 2018. To learn more about stuff in Smyrna, click here!
