Welcome to District 196 Community Education


Kindergarten Plus

2009-10 Parents' Guide to KindergartenKindergarten Plus (K-Plus) is an optional, fee-based, extended day program that complements half-day (free) kindergarten. The program is a collaboration between Elementary Education, which oversees the morning kindergarten program, and Community Education, which administers the afternoon Kindergarten Plus program. Morning and afternoon sessions are taught by a licensed kindergarten teacher, resulting in a cohesive, all-day experience for students.

Kindergarten Plus is available at all District 196 elementary schools.

Please note: As a result of the Minnesota State Legislature approving funding for full day kindergarten in the fall of 2014, the 2013-14 school year is the last year for fee-based Kindergarten Plus. District 196 will be offering free, full day kingergarten to all incoming kindergarten students in the fall of 2014. The information below is for the current school year, 2013-14, only.
