The Arizona Department of Education is planning a submission to Governor Brewer’s Office for the Preschool Development Grant. This is a statewide application with potential benefits for targeted high-needs communities within Arizona. Please see the attached information for more details.
The application does address the needs of children with disabilities as it outlines a requirement for LRE options of higher quality within the high needs communities. It also proposes providing site based coaching to support more inclusionary practices.
We appreciate your support as we move forward with the process.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
