Fall is here, and even though the Carolina temperatures don’t quite reflect that, some exciting things are underway for the new season.
EOC: 4K Block Grant application available
For the fifth year, the South Carolina General Assembly has authorized and funded the SC Community Block Grants for Education Pilot Program for Fiscal Year 2019-20. The Education Pilot Program’s purpose is to improve children’s readiness for kindergarten by enhancing the quality of pre-kindergarten programs for four-year-old children.
It is a matching grants program intended to encourage and sustain community partnerships among schools, school districts and local communities. Successful partnerships will implement innovative, state-of-the-art initiatives and models to improve student learning. Successful proposals will be well-designed and provide a proven track record of improving student performance.
Proposals are due by noon on October 9, 2019.
