Dear Kindergarten Parents,
Your child attends a District 58 Title 1 school* that offers the Optional Kindergarten Enrichment and Enhancement Program, or OKEEP. The District 58 Board of Education and administrative team seeks your input regarding your child’s experience in kindergarten so far this year. We are interested in feedback from parents with children in OKEEP, as well as from parents with children in traditional half-day kindergarten.
Please complete a short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/okeep1516 by Sunday, Jan. 31. Your feedback will help District 58 plan and improve upon its kindergarten and OKEEP curriculum.
Thank you for your participation.
District 58 Administrative Team
