The City of San Antonio is seeking public input on the classroom curriculum being considered for the Pre-K 4 SA program’s Education Centers. Curriculum proposals were sought from vendors from across the country and a team of professionals are reviewing the proposals. Part of the review process includes public input.
Public input matters! Interested members of the public will get an opportunity to see the teachers’ manuals, student books, and materials used in the classroom. The public will be asked to score the curriculum and provide feedback, which will be incorporated in the final curriculum recommendation made to the Pre-K 4 SA Curriculum Review Committee and Board of Directors.
“We firmly believe that hiring effective teachers that have a passion for teaching, along with finding a strong curriculum, will make Pre-K 4 SA an exciting place for our children to learn and grow academically,” said Elaine Mendoza, chair of the Pre-K 4 SA Board.
Public display of the curriculum will take place on Monday, April 15 and Tuesday, April 16, 2013 from 4 – 7 p.m. on the second floor of the Central Library, 600 Soledad, San Antonio, Texas 78205. Free parking will be made available to participants.
The Pre-K 4 SA Initiative will provide high–quality, full-day Pre-K for an estimated 22,000 four-year-olds over eight years, including 2,000 who will be served through four Education Centers. The program will provide teacher professional development for all participating school districts from Pre-K through Grade 3. Pre-K 4 SA also will provide high-quality Pre-K services for an additional 1,700 children through a competitive grant process beginning in the 2016-2017 school year with participating school districts and educational providers.
