NYC Extends Pre-K Deadline to Monday

NEW YORK -

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration on Friday extended the deadline for schools to submit a proposal for full-day prekindergarten to Monday afternoon. The Request For Proposals, which must be handed in by 5:00 p.m., is just a first stage to applying and does not commit the yeshivah or school.

The deadline comes days after the administration announced it would ease some of the terms that address many of the obstacles to private schools’ participation in the past.

The city is offering $7,500 per child in pre-k, or $9,000 if it is run by a director with a  Master’s degree in education. Every 4-year-old is eligible regardless of their parents’ income.
