The Pre-K 4 SA board of directors has chosen its transportation service to take students to and from the model education centers.
Four firms competed for the contract to provide transportation services for San Antonio's Pre-K 4 SA program.
Two of them were national companies - Durham Transportation, and First Student, Inc. One was a small, family-owned Texas company - All Aboard Transportation, based in Tom Bean. The final one hails from San Antonio - Star Shuttle.
Wednesday is the start of pre-enrollment for San Antonio’s new early childhood education initiative, Pre-K 4 SA. 700 students in total will be selected for the inaugural classes at the two model education centers, located on the northwest and southeast sides of town.
The city changed the dates and locations of pre-enrollment, which is now scheduled to run through May 9.
Veteran educator Kathy Bruck has been chosen to lead Pre-K 4 SA as the program's interim CEO.
With nearly 40 years of experience in early learning, Bruck said her job in leading Pre-K 4 SA through its infant phases will effect students, teachers, and parents, not only within the Pre-K 4 SA model education centers, but in districts and schools throughout San Antonio.
Pre-K 4 SA is making strides on its facilities, staffing, and curriculum, and although San Antonio initiated the program through a sales tax, Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Walter Dansby said residents there may be looking for another way to fund a program.
