Pre-Kindergarten

Posted by on in Carroll CSC Blog Posts
CCSC is looking to move forward with a proposal to plan for a pre-kindergarten class for next year.  This pilot program will be focused on serving 4 year-old students from high poverty backgrounds.  We will require the students be qualified for the federal free and reduced  lunch program. We do not want to take students away from other area preschools.  Our intent is to serve the neediest students who are not served by any other preschool program in Carroll County.  Our limit will be 15 four-year old students.  These students will ride our buses and complete a full day at Carroll Elementary.  We will not be taking any students who are considered "paid" students based on federal free lunch guidelines.   

If you know a pre-kindergarten student who may qualify, call us at the Central Office.  967-4113.  We would like to establish a classroom of 15 confirmed students in the next month.  


Our plan and proposal is to fund this program for one year from parent self-pay, school rainy-day funds, and grants.   We will evaluate the merits of program and continue it based on its successes and measurable growth for students.  We have had meetings with Bauer Headstart and Delphi Community Schools to plan applications for some basic grants to support the concept of a pre-kindergarten program county wide.   We have met with some area churches and invited all to be part of this planning process.

Another goal is to create a unified literacy and math curriculum and assessment program for all pre-kindergarten students in the county.  Our dream is to create a cohesive database that will help track data for preschools and prekindergarten students to see how they grow beyond pre-k.   This could inform the practice of the preschool or prekindergarten classes.  It will also help the kindergarten teacher to have the same data from all preschools and programs in the county.  

I'm excited that this has been a cooperative effort between multiple stakeholders to get this off the ground.  We are truly making the effort to provide a program for our neediest students.
