During 2000-01, Montgomery Count Public Schools launched its Kindergarten Initiative. This initiative expanded full-day kindergarten, reduce class sizes, revised the curriculum, provided professional development, and increased communication with parents. The report details four major findings: the continued progress of the acquisition of reading skills of both year 1 and year 2 Kindergarten Initiative students, the full-day kindergarten benefit, the progress of year 1 Kindergarten Initiative students into Grade 1, and evidence of better implementation in year 2 of the program.
