Governor Bredesen, Lieutenant Governor Wilder and Representative Fitzhugh Announce Pre-K Grants for Crockett County Nashville, TN- Governor Phil Bredesen, Lieutenant Governor John Wilder, Representative Craig Fitzhugh and the Tennessee Department of Education today announced $20 million in new pre-K grants to open 227 new classrooms under the Governor’s Voluntary Pre-K for All program. Ninety-six school systems across the state received funds to open new classrooms for the 2006-2007 school year, providing access to pre-K for 5,000 additional four-year-olds. In Crockett County, Crockett County Schools and Alamo City Schools each will receive $92,951 to fund one new pre-K classroom. Bredesen requested that the General Assembly appropriate an additional $20 million in this year’s budget for pre-K in Tennessee, increasing total funding for the program to $55 million. With the grant awards announced today, Tennessee’s voluntary pre-K program now extends to 88 of the state’s 95 counties. “I’m extremely pleased that every school system that has applied for pre-K funds has received enough to fund at least one classroom, and I want to thank the leaders of these school systems and their communities for embracing the opportunity to partner in an extraordinary program,” Bredesen said. “I especially want to recognize the teachers, who are responsible for maintaining the high quality of Tennessee’s pre-K experience.” “I am proud to announce that our community will receive new monies for Pre-Kindergarten this fall,” Lieutenant Governor Wilder said. “Early education creates a clear advantage for our young children’s future.” Tennessee has been recognized nationally as having among the highest standards for its pre-K program. In a ceremony in Washington D.C. today, the Tennessee Alliance for Early Education was awarded the 2006 Pre-K Champion Award by the national advocacy group Pre-K Now. Tennessee was one of four states to receive such recognition. “The quality of pre-K in Tennessee ranks us as one of the best states in the nation,” Representative Fitzhugh said. “As a community, high quality education is a priority that we all share.” In June, Education Commissioner Lana Seivers and Office of Early Learning Executive Director Bobbi Lussier addressed state leaders at a national conference where Tennessee’s pre-K program was highlighted as a model for other states. “Not too long ago, pre-K was not on the public radar in this state,” Seivers said. “Today, we are celebrating the breakneck expansion of pre-K classrooms and Tennesseans are aware of the benefits of pre-K because Governor Bredesen made early childhood education and the future of Tennessee’s children a priority.” State funding for pre-K has been increased to more than five times the funding level in 2003. When school resumes, funding from excess lottery prize money and increases in state funding will have allowed 527 new pre-K classrooms to open statewide in the past two years. The pre-K grant awards for the 2006-07 school year are: County LEA -School System # Classrooms Anderson Anderson County Schools 1 Anderson Oak Ridge Schools 1 Benton Benton County Schools 1 Bledsoe Bledsoe County Schools 1 Blount Blount County Schools 1 Blount Alcoa City Schools 1 Blount Maryville City Schools 1 Bradley Bradley County Schools 5 Bradley Cleveland City Schools 4 Campbell Campbell County Schools 2 Cannon Cannon County Schools 1 Carroll West Carroll SSD 1 Carter Carter County Schools 1 Cheatham Cheatham County Schools 1 Chester Chester County Schools 1 Claiborne Claiborne County Schools 3 Clay Clay County Schools 1 Cocke Cocke County Schools 3 Cocke Newport City Schools 1 Coffee Coffee County Schools 2 Crockett Crockett County Schools 1 Crockett Alamo City Schools 1 Cumberland Cumberland Co.
