If the class size is 20, would that include 1 or 2 teachers?
Mary Niesyn
10:35
It would be two adults. Likely a credentialed teacher and an instructional aide
Rachel Hickey
11:20
what is kindergarten full day hours?
Kanika Rankin
11:48
Will all children who meet criteria be admitted to TK?
Amy Kaufman
11:59
Is the credentialing for ECC required for the next school year or beyond?
Mary Niesyn
12:11
The hours would be the same as the Reed School schedule. 8:30-2:40 (1:40 on Wed)
Mary Niesyn
13:09
All students who meet the age criteria and live within the boundaries are eligible.
Ty Newell

How is Reed thinking about the "discretion" for younger children in the 2024/2025 time period. My concern is for children (like my son) with late summer birthdays who would not be eligible during those years. I'm worried all of his preschool classmates will move over to the TK program, leaving him older than remaining children in his preschool by a significant amount
Mary Niesyn
14:59
There is a two year window to obtain ECC Credentialing
Lisa Jacque
16:10
just confirming - children <5 are not eligible for bus transportation?
Mary Niesyn
16:42
Children must be 5 to ride the bus.
Mary Niesyn
17:09
Discretion is based on numbers, yes.
Suzanne Davenport
17:15
would TK recess/lunch be separate from K-2?
Kristin Kemnitzer (she/her)
19:07
Is there any timeline for when discretionary decisions will be made for children who do not meet the current age requirements? And, what criteria will go into those discretionary decisions? Thank you!
Mary Niesyn
19:44
We have not created recess lunch schedules at this time. But we always consider what would be best for students as we plan.
Rai Favacho
19:45
When is the enrollment scheduled to start?
Mary Niesyn
20:06
Enrollment is April 12
Lauren Thayer
20:40
How do we enroll our child?
Christine Bussenius
20:41
Can you speak to the 9 hour program requirement again and where can we find details around care before/after school hours and during breaks/summer? That will have an impact on our decision.
Amy Kaufman
21:21
Will there be any communication around staffing before enrollment closes?
Rachel Hickey
24:46
Program-wise, what could we expect in TK?

BTCCC is amazing!
Lauren Thayer
26:50
This is all very exciting. Thank you for all of the information!

But as I understood there is a current waitlist at BTCCC, will the TK kids be getting a spot for after school care anyhow or do they have to get one by the waiting list?
Stephanie Ham
29:11
It really applaud Reed for taking on this effort with full force! Such an important initiative. Thank you 🙏

When does enrollment end if it opens on April 12?
Summer Singh
33:31
One more thing to add for the parents that aren’t familiar with BTCCC (after school) or the Ranch programs, is that teachers will walk your child over to the after after care from the Reed campus so the parent doesn’t have to come and transfer their child to the appropriate after school program after Reed dismissal.
Simon Allen
33:56
Will the class reach capacity at 2 teachers, or if enough eligible children enroll will additional teachers be added?
Tai Carpi
35:02
Will TK be part of the state mandated universal free lunch for fall?
Tai Carpi
37:04
Great thanks! And just to confirm, TK will definitely be happening this fall on the Reed campus right?
Tai Carpi
37:18
Don’t want to be left without a spot.
Rai Favacho
37:47
This is great. My son is 15 now and went to Reed and this is great
Amy Kaufman
