Clay County Schools Awarded Three Classrooms

The Tennessee Department of Education Early Childhood Division awarded Clay County Schools three Pre-K classrooms for the 2021-2022 school year.

T.C.A. § 49-6-105 requires Voluntary Pre-K (TN-VPK) funding to be awarded through a competitive grant process. VPK funds are intended to support the most in need families and students, and the competitive grant process helps ensure Tennessee schools are providing consistent, high-quality VPK programs across the state and increasing opportunities for students from these families to benefit from VPK programming.

Two classes will be offered at Celina K-8 School, and one class will be offered at Hermitage Springs School. Each class has a maximum size of twenty students, so apply as soon as possible. If your child will be four years old on or before Aug. 15, 2021, please visit Celina K-8 or Hermitage Springs School to complete an application. If your child will be three years old on or before Aug. 15, 2021, visit Celina K-8 to complete an application.
