The Knox Elementary School will house a new preschool program beginning in April. Superintendent A.J. Gappa said the program is aimed at four and five year old children to need help before they enter kindergarten.
“It’s funded by our Title 1 funds, which is a federal grant program for schools that have a high percentage of free and reduced lunch students,” explained Gappa. “We’re presently screening students so if parents have children that they think might fit the program they can contact Jana Hazelton at the Knox Elementary School and set up a screening appointment.”
The program is expected to begin in April and run through the end of the regular school year.
“It would continue on and continue in the fall for the next school year. There will be a morning session and an afternoon session,” Gappa said.
