May 18, 2023 12:55 pm

Nancy Kern reports for Columbia-Greene Media that schools in Catskill, Chatham, Hudson, and Kinderhook will add full-day pre-kindergarten in the 2023-2024 school year, state Sen. Michelle Hinchey announced on May 15. Catskill Central Schools will receive $466,349 in Universal Pre-K funding for 20 new Pre-K seats; Chatham gets $226,800 for 22 new Pre-K seats; Hudson receives $538,441 for 20 new Pre-K seats; and Kinderhook gets $541,192 for 41 new Pre-K seats. Hinchey said, “This is a huge win for our students, teachers and taxpayers — it means more money for Hudson Valley classrooms, which helps our kids build the foundational skills they need to succeed throughout their lives while helping districts keep a lid on local school property taxes. Every student in New York deserves a good public education, like the one I had in the Ulster County public school system, and I’ll always stand with parents and teachers in championing transformative investments in our public schools.” Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
