The Maine DOE has created a new online application form that will make it easier for districts to apply for State approval of new or expanding public preschool programs.
Applications for preschool programs beginning this fall are due by June 30.
In addition to the online application, the Department has made budget and memorandum of understanding templates available to districts on its website here: http://www.maine.gov/doe/publicpreschool/establishing/index.html.
Prior to developing an application, districts are encouraged to review the recently updated Chapter 124: Standards for the Operation of Public Preschool Programs.
