In starting a classroom where prekindergarten students learn about science, technology, engineering and math, the Community Action Partnership of Lancaster County says it’s preparing for the workforce of the future.

 

With plans to open this fall, the classroom will join the 15 Head Start locations in Lancaster County that provide free, publicly funded, high-quality education to pre-K students from low-income families.

 

“This 21st-century classroom will employ an intergenerational approach to the reduction of poverty by improving student-parent prospects for the future,” said Jill Koser, CAP’s education and child development impact team leader.

S. Dale High can't wait to see what changes take place in Lancaster city's southwest district — an area fondly called SoWe by those who live there — by the year 2040.

No need to wait so long, Gene Duncan, chairman of the Southwest Neighborhood Leadership board, told High. Check back in a year to see what's been accomplished.

Duncan was among several city and SoWe representatives on hand Tuesday afternoon when High, representing the S. Dale High Family Foundation, announced grants totaling $600,000 that will be used to repair and improve properties, corridors, and gateways in the neighborhood.
