Wisconsin's smallest K-12 public school district will likely be getting bigger.
Tim Raymond, superintendent of the Washington Island School District, says the local preschool has asked the district to take over the 4-year-old kindergarten program.
Raymond says the preschool has been run by a privately funded group for a number of years and they've been in discussion with district officials about the move for about the past year.
He says the school board this month is scheduled to discuss and possibly take action on adding the 4K program for the 2013-2014 school year. Board members will also talk about possibly changing 5K from a half-day to a full-day program.
Raymond says the 4K move would affect about 10-12 children. He says the program would be housed in the school's elementary wing.
