Preschool project still alive, committee formed



April 10, 2012 - 12:00 AM

The Iola school board voted to form a special committee to further investigate a possible fine arts and literacy preschool program for USD 257.

The board delayed moving forward with the preschool project, which would be a partnership between the district, Allen Community College, The Bowlus Fine Arts Center and the Friends of the Bowlus, at its March 26 meeting.

Then, the board cited monetary concerns and too many unanswered questions. Monday, USD 257 Superintendent of Schools Brian Pekarek told board members the committee would be charged with answering driving questions needing to be addressed before any decision can be made to move forward with the project.
