The White Mountains Regional School District will move forward with plans
WHITEFIELD — The White Mountains Regional School District will move forward with plans next year for part-time preschool. Four-year-olds will have full-day preschool on Mondays and Tuesdays, and three-year-olds will have half-day preschool on Thursdays and Fridays. Superintendent Marion Anastasia told the school board last week the compromise was necessary in response to budget constraints. WMRSD scuttled plans for full-time, five-day preschool for three- and four-year-olds after the proposed budget was defeated in March, and the school district was forced to slash $750,000 in projected spending. Anastasia said part-time preschool was not ideal, and WMRSD intends to push for a return to full-time age 3/4 Pre-K the following year.
