Expanding Pre-K Fee Structure to Provide Access and Equity for Families
Metro Schools wants to narrow the achievement gap by ensuring all families, regardless of location, income or academic need, have access to the benefits of early childhood education. The district is expanding its Pre-K fee structure to better support equity and access to such programs.
The focus on Pre-K access directly supports goals and strategies from the district's Strategic Framework including:
Delivering high-quality pre-K–12 instruction and increase the relevance and rigor of the pre-K–12 curriculum
Providing equitable access — across MNPS schools and clusters — to a high-quality well-rounded Pre-K–12 education.
