DeKalb Schools Pre-K

Hey Nancy,

My son is supposed to start pre-k in August at Chesnut. I know that the Board approved the 2013 budget last week and that 2.7 million was cut from pre-k. However, there seems to be lots of confusion (including in the media) as to what this actually means in terms of this coming school year’s pre-k classes.

  • Will the Pre-k programs in the public elementary schools only be funded with the state amount?
  • What does this mean for the school year?
  • What does this mean in terms of the current pre-k teachers?
  • Will they have to change to uncertified teachers?
  • Will the program have a shorter day?
  • More students?
  • Will there still be a paraprofessional in the class?

What’s up with that?

  1. I have asked the Superintendent to communicate with the incoming Pre-K families and explain what impact the budget is going to have on their class for the upcoming school year. I have posed many of the same questions you have and I await a response from the school district’s administration.

    I encourage you to contact your school’s principal and the county office and ask them for more details on how the Pre-K program in DCSD will work for the 2012-13 school year.

    When I receive updated information about the pre-k program, I will certainly communicate it.
