Liberal, Coffeyville, and Rossville received a grant to help parents place their pre-schooler in the right environment. U.S.D. 480 will partner with Head Start. Washington Elementary assistant principal Traci Mettlen says it's like a one stop shop for parents. "Parents can go in and we look at that student and their family and we find what best fits them whether that be Head Start, a community pre-school or a pre-school in U.S.D. 480." The district will be able to use resources such as profressional development, space, or a natural peer environment. 480 has applied for the grant again next year.
