Would you please look into the waste of time, resources & money spent on the Wicomico County Kindergarten Registration Fair.
It is held at the Wicomico County Civic center for an entire week.
Here is the link on the wcboe website.
I went last year & it took over 3 hours to register my child for Kindergarten. I waited in line 5 different times before we were done. --and I preprinted my own paperwork ahead of time!!!
Many parents were upset & had to take 1/2 day off of work to drive all the way to the Civic Center on their "scheduled day" & register their child. If they couldn't make it to the Fair, they had to drive to the BOE & set up an appointment with them.
There was a ton of staff present at the event all week & I'm sure they incurred rental fees as well. The children did not get to visit the school they would attend in the fall.
Parents were very upset last year, and the kids hated it. I see they are doing the same thing again this year. I do not understand why they are using the Civic Center for the entire week, when the district owns so many buildings. I wonder how many extra people had to be paid for the week to sub at the schools. I also wonder how many different times the child's paperwork was transferred before arriving at the child's actual school.
Thanks for looking into it.
