Speakers for Agenda Item D1 Child Care Learning Labs -

  • Julie Miller 
  • Victoria Johnson 
  • Joel Miller
  • Katie Wood
  • Patrick Johnston 

Alice Paulk, Supervisor of Career and Technical Education, identified the two issues addressed in this item. 

The 2-year-old Child Care Learning Labs programs have been phased out in all but one school.  

Other programs available for 3 and 4-year-olds are experiencing a personnel coverage issue in the afternoon hours.  The addition of five 0.6 or 0.5 positions would extend the closing time from 3:00 to 4:15.  The cost of the additional allocations would be covered through an increase in tuition.  Mrs. Paulk will determine the cost calculation of these additional allocations.
