For the 2019-2020 school session, the Tangipahoa Early Childhood Community Network is requesting 450 LA4 seats, which is an increase of 20 seats from the 2018-2019 session. Due to the completion of the Pre-K Expansion Grant, we are requesting the 20 seats currently funded through that program to be funded through LA4 for the 19-20 session. We are requesting to continue the current Pre-K Expansion classes at The Early Learning Center of Ponchatoula (20 seats), Just Kiddin Around in Ponchatoula (20 seats), and Explore and Learn in Hammond (20 seats). These seats will be funded through the remaining Pre-K Expansion funds that have been re-allocated from existing unfilled seats throughout the state this school year. Applications for new Pre-K Expansion seats will not be allowed for the 2019-2020 school session. Overall, no new classes will be added to the Early Childhood Network for the 2019-2020 school year.
We are encouraging pubic input for the 2019-2020 funding plan. Please direct all comments to Carmen.firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments may also be mailed to 59656 Puleson Rd. Amite, LA 70422, faxed to 985-748-2455, or hand delivered to the Curriculum Department at the Tangipahoa Parish Central Office.
