GARNERVILLE, N.Y. -- After meetings between the North Rockland Full Day Kindergarten Advocates and the Board of Education and state legislators, various Assembly Members showed their support and presented a bill for the cause at a recent press conference.
Assembly Members Kenneth Zebrowski, James Skoufis, Ellen Jaffee, Senator David Carlucci and a representative from Senator William Larkin, Jr. announced their support for a Full Day Kindergarten and a bill to help fund Full Day K for North Rockland and eight other districts in the state.
