CORVALLIS, Ore. - The Corvallis 509J School District is moving to district-wide all-day Kindergarten next school year.

The school board voted on the issue after a late night meeting filled with expert testimony, concerned parents and parents who approved of the plan.

The district is currently split with four schools having all-day kindergarten and the others only having morning half-day classes.

The district told NewsSource 16 that it felt it had the space and the finding necessary to make a move in time for next fall, and it said parents who already enrolled for kindergarten next year will be automatically rolled over.
