Title I preschool
This program is designed to prepare children for a successful transition to kindergarten. Active family involvement is an integral part of the program. Families are the first and most consistent teachers that children experience in their lives. Children will make the most progress when families and teachers work together. An early childhood teacher and para-professional will plan age-appropriate learning experiences to promote growth and development in the classroom and at home.
The program is cost-free for eligible students.
Transportation services are not available for students attending Title I preschool.
Saint Joseph School District has the capacity to service 322 pre-kindergarten aged students and is funded by Title I. Pre-Kindergarten age is defined as any child that will be 4 years of age by August 1st of the school year. Based on federal funding guidelines, we must service those students with the most need first. Need is determined based on a set of criteria including a developmental screening and parent questionnaire.
