ELBA, ala. (WDHN) — Last spring, the Alabama Department of Education received 163 school applications for Pre-K classes.
Gov. Kay Ivey said Alabama’s Pre-K classes are a model for the rest of the country.
Elba Elementary was selected by the state as one of some 55 new Pre-K’s statewide.
It’s the school’s second pre-k class, which means the addition of a teacher and teacher-assistant.
This school year marks the 14th consecutive year Alabama leads the nation, providing top-notch early learning experiences for four-year-olds.
