TUCSON, Ariz. — Amphitheater School District will offer free, full-day kindergarten next year.

The district announced the change in a news release Wednesday morning, citing the recently approved K-3 budget override passed by voters earlier this month.

“Free full-day kindergarten is a game-changer for the Amphitheater community,” Superintendent Todd Jaeger said in the news release.

The district also offered a list of all the schools currently accepting free, full-day kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year:

The news release also says families interested in the Rillito Center about free, full-day kindergarten should contact that school directly.

In addition to the kindergarten change, the district says the budget override will also allow class-size reductions in grades K-3.
