PHOENIX -- Full-day kindergarten made news early in the legislative session as lawmakers discussed ways to close Arizona's $3 billion budget deficit for the fiscal year that begins in July.

Four months later, school districts don't think the program will be reduced to half-day funding.

Paradise Valley, Chandler and Mesa school districts have joined others across metro Phoenix in notifying parents that they'll offer all-day kindergarten next year.
