State Board of Education Awards 2017-18 Early Childhood Grants

The Nebraska State Board of Education  has voted to approve 11 new and expansion Early Childhood Education Program grants that will provide access to high-quality early childhood education for approximately 270 at-risk 3- and 4-year-olds during the 2017-18 school year. Several of the schools received grants to provide full-day care, which is important for families with both parents working.

Funded programs receive grants up to one-half of their total operating budget per year; each district receiving funding is required to operate in compliance with Rule 11 Regulations, which utilize research-based elements to produce strong outcomes for children.

These school districts were awarded grants for the 2017-18 school year:
