Charles City, Iowa – Seven area school districts in Floyd, Mitchell and Chickasaw counties may offer kindergarten prep classes this spring, thanks to a local school ready grant.
FMC (Floyd, Mitchell and Chickasaw) Early Childhood Area board members will review school district applications when they meet on Monday, November 21. The regular board meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Floyd County courthouse lower assembly room.
According to Laurie Kristiansen, FMC Early Childhood Iowa Area director, potential school districts include: Charles City, Central Springs, St. Ansgar, Nashua-Plainfield, Sumner-Fredericksburg, Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock, and New Hampton.
The funds for the classes are administered by the local FMC Early Childhood Iowa board and originate from the state’s Early Childhood Iowa school ready funds. Funding from the same grant offers preschool scholarships to eligible students in participating preschool programs throughout the three county areas.
Other agenda items include a financial report from the FMC fiscal agent and Floyd County Auditor, Gloria Carr and first quarter reports from grant providers.
The meeting is open to the public. For more information about FMC Early Childhood Iowa, its programs and services, contact Laurie Kristiansen, director, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
