Full Day Kindergarten and Proposed Construction

  • Shamona Creek KidsSince 2006, DASD has been working toward the addition of district-wide full-day kindergarten. As the district has continued to grow and enrollment has increased, the board and administration have strategically evaluated facility construction options to provide appropriate class sizes and equity across the district.

    After consulting multiple architectural and demographics firms, the administration and board have narrowed the construction options down to three choices. All three options provide for district-wide full-day kindergarten and address the growing enrollment needs of our district.

    Community members are invited to share their feedback online or at the upcoming May 24 Town Hall at 7:30 p.m. at the Downingtown STEM Academy (335 Manor Ave, Downingtown, PA 19335).
