St. Louis County (KSDK) - The Mehlville School District voted Thursday night to allow families to send their children to kindergarten tuition-free.
The school board voted 7-0 to approve the proposal, which will begin in August 2013.
Previously, tuition was $2,200.
The district is able to offer tuition-free kindergarten due to state funding.
The Mehlville School District was one of only four school districts in Missouri to have tuition-based kindergarten.
