Welcome to Kindergarten Family Night! (Click here for more information)
Tecumseh Local, in conjunction with the Clark County ESC Preschool and Head Start programs, will be hosting a Kindergarten Family Night on Thursday, May 1st at Park Layne Elementary.

                                            2014-2015 Kindergarten Update
     Several weeks ago, Tecumseh Local Schools decided the district will be moving to an all-day every-day kindergarten program beginning next school year.  The District feels this is necessary and the best decision for our students and community.  The State adjusted our funding this year and some funds have been designated as restricted.  The restricted funding we received will be utilized to re-institute all-day every-day kindergarten.

     An evaluation of the pros and cons associated with this move, with the focus being on building utilization and capacity, was performed.  During this evaluation we focused on the financial impact of the plan.  The district wants to use the restricted funding, but TLS does not want to burden the district with excess costs in the present and future of Tecumseh Local Schools. 

     After careful consideration the most appropriate option was to house our kindergarten and first grade students at Park Layne and move our second and third grade students to Donnelsville.  Essentially, we will switch the staffing at each of the buildings over the summer months.  This will give us enough space to accommodate the students at their newly assigned building.  This option was deemed the best option due to a variety of reasons; no additional cost for staffing in administration, secretarial, specials, custodial and busing.  Transportation to an additional building would also not increase; this would have occurred if we re-opened Medway or pursued community schools.

     The initial cost associated with this program, moving of staff over the summer, will be outweighed immediately by the savings incurred by not fully opening an additional building.  It was deemed this approach would be best for the community also, due to the cost savings of accommodating all-day every-day kindergarten into our current building structure.
