This is to inform you of the status of full day kindergarten in Amphitheater for the 2013-2014 school year. As I am sure you are aware, the Legislature has imposed unprecedented budget cuts for K-12 education in Arizona. As a consequence, our Governing Board was required to make significant budget reductions for next year. One of the cuts made was funding for full day kindergarten in the District. The total tuition cost for the full day kindergarten will be $1300, payable as a $400 registration fee and a required $450 payment prior to the beginning of each semester, totalling $1300 for the year. The tuition total is a required Non-Refundable Advance Payment. We feel that this is the lowest possible tuition fee we can charge for the 2013-2014 school year. I trust you understand that this non-refundable advance payment is required to ensure we can pay for teacher salaries as well as supplies for our students.
We are planning to have at least one full day tuition class available at each one of our elementary schools. As a result, it will be very important that families that are interested in the full day program register for the program at their elementary schools as soon as possible.
I know this is a very difficult time for many and there may be families who are not able to afford this tuition amount for full day kindergarten. A portion of the tuition payment can be claimed as an Arizona Tax Credit. We hope that the tax credit possibility will help many families better afford full day kindergarten for their children. Please speak with Michelle (696-6095) if you have any questions about taking advantage of the tax credit.
You may download all of the forms below, fill them out, print and bring to school. This will help speed up the registration time.
