I've been researching schools in the Cincy area since my hubby has a job interview next week. I noticed on the Sycamore Schools website that the cost of tuition for kindergarten was over $2,500. Do many of the public schools charge tuition? I've lived in Columbus, OH and now Charleston, SC and I've never heard of this. (Although our property taxes in a good school district in a Columbus suburb were through the roof-so maybe it evens out.)
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Half-day kindergarten giving way to all-day

The traditional HALF-DAY kindergarten programs are FREE at Sycamore Public Schools. The EXTENDED FULL DAY kindergarten is available and there an additional charge. In that district, there is also half-day pre-school at a charge.

I'm an idiot. Thank you for clearing that up. I totally misread that. In South Carolina, my daughter would end up attending full day kindergarten which I think is a bit much.
Thanks also for the article!

That was NOT easy to find out. I spent at least twenty minutes on the website trying to figure it out.

Personally, I believe that Sycamore is offering pre-school (which is very unusual) and a full-day kindergarten in order to be competitive with private and parochial schools which are doing the same.

You are not an idiot. The Sycamore website is difficult to use. I've been trying to negotiate it for 12 years now and it is not user friendly. The schools are good, but the website is problematic. Not once in 12 years have the bus routes/schedules been posted on the day promised. We usually just give up, walk to the high school, and read the printed list posted on the door.

BTW, public schools in Ohio do not charge tuition for K - 12, but they do have book fees, material fees, etc. which usually runs under one hundred dollars.
