LCSD to Offer Expanded Pre-K Program
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 -
“Does the Liverpool Central School District offer Pre-K?”
Until recently the answer was “no,” but in late October the district was awarded a New York State Pre-Kindergarten grant that will allow it to establish an Expanded Pre-K Program for LCSD four-year-olds beginning in January 2018.
The Expanded Pre-K program will be offered at one or more local agencies, although those locations have yet to be determined. Students must attend the program five days a week for two-and-a-half hours per day. Instruction will be consistent with the New York State Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core, which focuses on a child’s social/emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Transportation to and from the program will be the responsibility of parents/ guardians.
To be eligible, a child must:
- Be four years old on or before December 1, 2017 (born in the year 2013)
- Reside in the Liverpool Central School District
Those interested in having their child participate in the Expanded Pre-K program are asked to fill out a notice of interest form online (click here to access). The completed form is due by Friday, December 1, 2017.
The program will be limited to 200 children. In the event that more applications are received than can be accommodated, the district will conduct an open lottery in which children will be selected at random.
