Edmonds: New kindergarten tuition approved
Tuition for full-day kindergarten in the Edmonds School District will go up $4 a month for the 2013-14 school year.
School board members recently approved the new fee schedule, which goes up from $364 a month to $368 a month for a total of $3,680 for the school year.
State funding covers half-day kindergarten. Districts are allowed to charge tuition to make up the difference for parents who choose full-day kindergarten, which is not required.
