The Monroe County Community School Corporation is expanding its preschool program next year.

MCCSC says it will offer preschool at Summit Elementary School beginning next fall.

The program will provide assistance to 20 low income students using federal Title I funding. It is expected follow the same curriculum and schedule as the other three pre-schools in the district at Fairview, Grandview and Templeton elementary schools.

Director of Elementary Education Tammy Miller is presenting the plan at the school board’s meeting. She says expanding the district’s pre-k program is key to preparing students for later grades.

“Early education is critical,” Miller says. “There’s more and more research that shows us how important that early childhood experience is for children and it’s also very important for them in their readiness skills in getting ready to read,” she says.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the district’s Administration Center.
