District discusses early childhood consolidation

By on January 28, 2011

KANELAND—The Kaneland School Board on Monday discussed a proposed move to consolidate the district’s four Early Childhood programs into just two programs for the 2011-12 school year, with the assumption that a merger of Early Childhood programs would promote scheduling flexibility, staff teamwork and efficiency in any related service.

The four elementary school buildings in the district each currently host an Early Childhood program. John Shields and Blackberry Creek Elementary are the two schools slated to have Early Childhood programs if a merger takes place, with Blackberry Creek designating a classroom to be used for students with autism.
