Waiver Request: New Preschool Center

After discussion with appropriate District personnel, it was felt that the Pre-School Center would be better served with an alternate technology plan. (See attached letter) If the alternate plan is approved by the Board, a copy of the Board Order and letter will be sent to KDE for review and approval.
