An inter-agency agreement will create a new preschool program at May Street Elementary School in 2019-20.

The Hood River County School District announced in a press release that the agreement follows a series of preschool planning sessions involving early learning experts, staff at Hood River County School District, Mid-Columbia Children’s Council (MCCC), the Columbia Gorge Health Council and state grant managers.

MCCC will manage the preschool starting in September.

 The school board approved an agreement to host the program in an April board meeting. This one-year pilot will enable the district to explore opportunities to expand access to quality preschool opportunities for Hood River County children, said a press release.
