You can potentially enroll your children into 4K at Gibraltar Area Schools as soon as next school year. The Gibraltar Area School Board gave preliminary approval to move forward with a 4K pilot program for the 2022-2023 school year. The decision allows Gibraltar Superintendent Tina Van Meer to continue planning the pilot while the financial impact and curriculum details of the program are determined. Van Meer said earlier this month that they have been working with other area early education providers to find a solution that works for everyone.
Research shows that children participating in programs like 4K are more likely to complete school, avoid remedial classes, and experience high levels of achievement in high school. Final approval for the 4K pilot program at Gibraltar could be granted as soon as the board’s December 13th meeting.
