Dear SWRCSD Residents,

The District is working on long-term planning for Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK). Over the last two years, SWR has received New York State (NYS) funding to provide UPK services. This past year the funding increased from 32 seats to 75 seats for a total of $405,000 or $5,400 per seat. The funding may not be used for any other purpose. Per NYS, in order to be eligible for funding the seats must be awarded through a lottery and be full-time for at least 5 hours a day.

The UPK plan for 2022-23 provides for two classrooms at the Wading River School provided through SCOPE Educational Services and two classrooms at St. Anselm's. This is a one-year plan.

Below please find a link to a short survey related to UPK funding and location after the 2022-2023 school year. This survey should only be completed by SWR residents. Please take a moment to answer the four survey questions as your feedback will be utilized to plan for the future of UPK in the District. This survey takes less than one minute to complete.

Mr. Gerard W. Poole
