The Howell K-8 School District has announced that the 17th year of its integrated preschool program will begin in September.
The integrated preschool program will serve 3-year-old and 4-year-old children; classes will be balanced based on age. Morning and afternoon sessions will be held five days per week.
Preschool pupils who have a disability and typically developing preschool pupils will come together in an inclusive classroom where language, academic skills and social skills will be developed in a nurturing environment, according to a press release from the school district.
Enrollment is open to typical preschool pupils who will be selected via a lottery process.
Tuition for the program will be $3,200 for the 2021-22 school year. Parents may choose to make one payment for the entire cost or pay the tuition according to a specified fee schedule.
Transportation may be available for a fee; otherwise parents will be responsible for transporting their child/children to and from the program, according to the press release.
The lottery drawing will be held virtually on May 7 at 2 p.m. Parents do not have to be present for the lottery drawing, but are welcome to attend. A link will be emailed to all applicants who submit an application by April 30.
