SAN ANTONIO -- School districts around San Antonio will soon be deciding whether or not they will be joining the Pre-K 4 SA program.
A board has put together a memorandum of understanding, or MOU, for each district to approve. However, at least two of the three largest districts in the city are still on the fence about the program. North East Independent School District and Northside Independent School District have a lot of questions for the city before voting on the memorandum that is set to go out to 15 local districts Friday.
The North East ISD board is concerned about funding and transportation.
“There's an issue of funding and how much funding we are going to be sending over,” explained North East ISD spokesperson Aubrey Chancellor.
Northside ISD has similar questions. Spokesperson Pascual Gonzalez says the MOU is a complex document, and they also plan to talk with the city about transportation, funding, accountability and special education.
San Antonio Independent School District officials said the MOU is workable for their district, and they are working out some final details on the plan.
