  8. Proposal One1712 Typical District Run Program To Open: September 6th 2011 Why: To maintain a preschool program for the children of Onondaga Central School District Staffing Needs: * One Certified Teacher * Two 0.4 FTE Teaching Assistant Structure: *Monday, Wednesday, Friday - 4 year old students *AM session: 8:45 – 11:15 – 24 students *PM session: 12:15 – 2:45 – 24 students *Tuesday/Thursday – 3 year old students *AM session: 8:45 – 11:15 – 24 students *PM session: 12:15 – 2:45 – 24 students

  9. Notes • We believe we can fill the 1712 program and meet the needs of the community • There would be no charge of tuition for district residents • We would use the existing classroom, materials, furniture, and supplies • Parents would be responsible for transportation • Parents would need to show proof of residency, shot records, physical, and lead test results • There would be a registration deadline set for district parents to register children • After registration deadline, if spots are still available, we would open up the program to out of district children at a monthly tuition charge • Parents would be asked to support the program through a snack and supply fee • Having a preschool program within the Rockwell building, eases anxiety for our incoming Kindergarten students because of the familiarity of the building and staff
