All-day kindergarten in Kansas

Change Indicator

Data Provided By

Definitions: All-Day Kindergarten is the percent of public elementary schools (with or without kindergarten program) that offer full-day kindergarten five days a week, as opposed to half-day or every other day format. Public non-elementary buildings with a kindergarten program are also included in the calculation.

Data Source: Data are provided by the Kansas State Department of Education. The current rate represents academic year 2019–2020. 

Footnotes: Data represent academic years 2014-2015 through 2018-2019, reflecting September enrollment status at the beginning of the academic year. In denominator, we include all public elementary school buildings even when some don't offer kindergarten program, and non-elementary public school buildings that enroll kindergarten students. Main reason for the increase in the percentage from 2017 to 2018 is because of  3% reduced number of elementary schools in Kansas for the latest academic year serving as the denominator. The trend rate represents the average annual change for academic years 2015–2016 through 2019–2020.
