PRINCETON — The Princeton Elementary School Board is hopeful it will be able to reinstate its Early Childhood program before the start of the new school year, but it might require meeting in special session to get it accomplished.
At this week’s board meeting, Superintendent Tim Smith said he has not yet received needed information from the Illinois State Board of Education concerning the district’s Early Childhood Block Program Grant for the coming school year. However, there is no indication at all the grant for PES will not be approved. He’s confident the district will be able to reinstate the program and recall its staff, Smith said.
As for a possible reason why the needed information has not yet been received, Smith said there are some districts which are not accepting the Early Childhood Block Grant and discontinuing their programs, which means the existing money would be reallocated, and maybe PES would get more money. Whatever the final amount, he’s confident PES will get at least an amount equal to what it received last year, and possibly more.
