Full-Day Kindergarten


The plan to offer full-day kindergarten for the first time in Mount Olive history has been finalized by the Board of Education and accepted by the New Jersey Department of Education. The vote is set for Tuesday, September 27. 

The Full-Day K Plan:

  • will better prepare students for first grade and beyond – educationally, emotionally, and socially

  • calls for the construction of 14 classrooms at Sandshore Elementary School

  • will more evenly distribute the numbers of students at the district’s elementary schools

  • is divided into two propositions on the ballot – Proposition #1 authorizes the district to build the 14 classroom addition at Sandshore; Proposition #2 authorizes the district to include in its annual budget the money ($808,000) to pay the extra teaching staff that will be needed

  • will annually cost the average home approximately $92.50 when the two propositions are combined

  • will only move forward if BOTH propositions are approved

  • spreads the $6.65 million construction cost of the 14-classroom addition over 15 years 

If you would like to host an informational meeting in August or September to have your questions answered, district officials would be happy to meet with groups of five or more voters.
