SD1 Aims for Public Preschool Programs

Sheridan County School District 1 is pioneering the idea of public early childhood education.

Superintendent, Marty Kobza, explains why starting the educational process even younger than kindergarten can yield lifetime benefits for the student.

Kobza said he's had a public preschool program in the works for a few years, but hasn't yet secured support from the Wyoming state legislature. However, at the time, the legislature was preoccupied with state budgetary concerns. The district plans to reintroduce the resolution again.

There are currently preschool programs that serve children in the area of the district, but they are fee-based. Kobza said having a public early childhood educational program could help all students have an experience that prepares them for kindergarten by using streamlined terminology and a curriculum tailored to make for an easy transition into the district's kindergarten program. The district is currently working toward this goal via liaisons with the area's existing preschool programs.
