Four area preschool centers will benefit from a $4.5 million dollar Early Reading First grant.
The U.S. Department of Education awarded the grant to the Green River Regional Educational Cooperative.
The three-year project will target four-and five-year-old children who attend Allen County Primary Center, Chandlers Elementary in Logan County, and Cumberland Trace Elementary and Warren Elementary in Warren County.
The project will use professional development for teachers and other staff as well as the research-based early literacy curriculum.
The program began August 31st.
