Clinton Schools approved the employment of Lauren Johnson as their new Pre-K Grant Coordinator for 2018-19.
The Pre-K grant is what schools have to apply for to help get funding towards early childhood developments. The state changed that a few years back to make it more competitive and this grant is excellent said Clinton Superintendent Cur Nettles.
With doing so well, earning a hundred thousand dollars more, Lauren Johnson will be able to spend more time with the families and early development, though the position isn't here to completely stay unless they continue to receive the grant money.
With the grant money now being more competitive where schools have to apply for the grant it affects other schools says Nettles.
Clinton schools have worked to get these grants providing resources on early development, and they wish to continue providing services to parents and kids.
