Page 12, Cloverdale Reveille, June 18, 1997 k PRE-SCHOOL their ability to keep the lease," he said. Perrault indicated that he would send the preschool a let- ter telling them that with the SAY program introduced, there is more than likely going to be an impact and they may want to look for housing alternatives in the fall. "It's too early to tell them they are definitely going to terminate," he said. "The components of the SAY program are just under develop- ment right now. Until that pro- gram is fleshed out its hard to determine whether they [SAY and the Co-op] will be in opera- tion at the same time and at what levels--it probably won't be known for another 30 days," he said. Facing the possibility of start- ing fall classes in less than three months without a building puts the future of the pre-school in question. Pre-school teacher Angela Hetrick said she wishes the City would have given them notice. "It's been in the paper--it didn't say it was going to be located at the City Park. I was never aware of that and all the parents I talked to were never aware of it," she explained. According to Hetrick, the pre- school is invaluable. It offers very reasonable rates giving parents a chance who would otherwise never be able to afford a pre- school experience for their chil- dren. Speakers visit monthly to discuss child development with parents. And, she reports, it is the first step in parent involve- ment within the school system. "The parents involved in the co-op are the ones involved in all the programs at Jefferson," she said. Hetrick said parents have an- other concern about the trou- bled teen center being located at the city's only large park set up for children. "They are afraid its going to make it a more uncom- fortable feeling at the park--that it won't feel safe and secure," she explained. According to Perrault, the youth that will be involved in the program are not going to be hard core delinquents, but kids who are just beginning to give indication of problems. The pre-school is funded through Cloverdale Unified School District's Adult Educa- tion Program, and Superinten- dent of Cloverdale School's Dr. Donald Sato says he is working hard to find the co-op a room. "We are implementing for re- duction of class size in K-3 next year. The district needs the build- ings for the classrooms--that's our first priority. Everybody is implementing so it is very diffi- cult to obtain a classroom," he said. According to Sato, he thought the pre-school had another year's grace period at the City Park location. "Suddenly they told me they were asked to move out of the building at the park. The district is obligated to find a place. I'm working very hard to find out whether I can find one classroom--we have to make room some way if the board wants to keep the adult ed program," he said. Dr. Sato says he will strongly urge the school board to retain the program. "Once you lose the adult ed program, it is very diffi- cult to get it back--that's a mis- take," he explained. Sato said the ideal location for the pre-school is at Jefferson where pre-school and kindergar- ten programs can be coordinat- ed together and there can be articulation of curriculum. Another idea he has is having the preschool at Cloverdale High where students of the award winning Future Homemaker's of America can work with the children. BUDGET has the lowest per capita cost of local government of any city in the County, and the lowest gen- eral fund budget.
