Board to discuss preschool changes

By The Mercury

The USD 383 school board will hear about future changes to the preschool program during its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Robinson Education Center.

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) mandated changes for 2014-15 as a part of the plan to become fully synchronized with the U.S. Department of Education’s Early Childhood reforms.

Based on current information, the district would have additional financial costs for a full-time preschool coordinator, professional development for the new Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS), Child Development Associate (CDA) training and certification for Pre-K Aides.

Other agenda items include the board getting reports on mid-year enrollment and mentoring program for new teachers.

The board also is scheduled to vote on the issue of revising the district’s notice of non-discrimination to include that USD 383 “provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups.”
