Clear Creek Amana preschools has changed the service delivery model for preschool starting in the 2019.2020 school year. At all elementary sites, there will be an AM class and a PM class, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (no Wednesdays). Students will be enrolled in one or the other class time. AM hours will be from 8:15 to 11:15 and PM class will be from 12:15 to 3:15. There will be NO CHARGE to qualifying students. To qualify for FREE preschool, a student must be the of age 4 on or before September 15th. There are no requirements for residency or income. Curriculum guidelines and assessment procedures will be the same for both AM and for PM classes.
Bussing: Students WILL be given the opportunity to be bussed to and from designated neighborhood stops, individual redidences and to the best of our ability, to currently licensed DHS daycares which reside in our district. CCA schools are not permitted per state requirements to bus outside of our boundaries. Bus stops and routes will be determined in the Spring of 2019 and updated as needed. Families will be notified of these stops.
School day/onsite daycare: Space permitting, an onsite daycare could be offered through a collaborative partner (Little Clippers) at selective sites. Amana and Clear Creek potentially might have room. There are no guarantees. Tiffin Elementary and North Bend Elementary are not likely to have the necessary space to partner for day care services.
Out of district families: In district families will have priority for enrollment. The district does anticipate being able to offer preschool to out of district families. Out of district families enrolled in preschool will still need to follow all open enrollment policies outlined by the School Board for school-aged years (Kindergarten). North Bend Elementary, Clear Creek and Tiffin Elementary are currently closed to open enrollment for kindergarten through 5th grade.
