The Mehlville School District Board of Education approved free full-day kindergarten for the 2013-14 school year.
The motion passed 7-0.
See Mehlville-Oakville Patch Friday for more details.
Mehlville was one of only four districts in Missouri that charged tuition for its full-day kindergarten, and tuition-free classes have grown in popularity nationwide. The three remaining districts are also in St. Louis County: Lindbergh, Rockwood and Webster Groves school districts.
Kirkwood School District most recently switched to a tuition-free program in December.
Parents will still have the opportunity to enroll their children in the half-day program.
