Pre-School for All – Surprise! New process for applying, starting TOMORROW!
Thanks to Christine Whitley for alerting me to this new PreK application process that starts tomorrow! Wow.
This new central process for Pre-School for All will be in affect for all kids entering as 3 year olds next year. Current 3 year olds in a program will have a guaranteed spot in their current program, but can still apply to others without losing their current placement. Some key information below. I can’t figure out how they select who gets in where. Age? Location? At-risk-ness? Tier? Lottery? I don’t see that information anywhere.
Applications must be submitted IN PERSON at one of their special sites from April 3 – May 3.
APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED SO FAR DON”T COUNT.
YOU CAN SELECT 3 SCHOOLS TO APPLY TO.
NOT ALL THE SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED YET.
DECISIONS WILL BE SENT IN EARLY JUNE.
THE PROGRAM IS NOW SLIDING SCALE BASED. (I can’t find the calculator, but Christine reports that some says up to $400+/mo for top income households.)
More information and list of 2013-14 awardees coming soon.
