DESE Receives Grant For Early Childhood

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education received word today [Thursday] they have received a $6.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The money will be used to fund the Stronger Together Missouri project, which aims to implement a comprehensive, statewide birth-to-kindergarten entry needs assessment. It will also be used to update the state’s Early Childhood Strategic plan to enhance long-term sustainability in early childhood services.

Missouri will begin to implement the grant early the year.
