East Ramapo School District Awarded Pre-K Grant

East Ramapo School District has been awarded a grant for their Pre-K program that will bring the current amount of $371,250 for this school year to $675,000 for next school year. As long as the district follows state set performance standards they will receive the grant, which allows them to enroll about 150 more Pre-Kindergarten students to the free program and will extend the current program that enrolls 100 students to five hours. According to Arnie Warmbrand, the coordinator of the program, at least 150 four- year olds have been on the waiting list for the last two years and this grant will allow them to provide an education for all of them. Warmbrand stated that a study has shown that Pre- Kindergarten programs allow children, especially low income children, to succeed in their academic lives.
