HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. -- Rockland state Assembly members Ken Zebrowski and James Skoufis announced their proposal to better assist school districts' transition to full-day kindergarten on Monday at the Haverstraw Town Hall.

As of the 2015-16 school year, only nine school districts in New York state still provide half-day programs to students. The legislation would help the remaining school districts achieve full-day kindergarten by expanding the current incentive aid program from one year to five years.

The bill would better fund the cost of transitioning to a full-day program and would move the state closer to universal full-day kindergarten.
