CVU hosts regional college fair

Champlain Valley Union High School’s 18th Annual Spring College Fair is set for Monday, April 2 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

College representatives from across New England, the mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Canada will be on hand to speak with both students and parents.

This is an opportunity for this year’s high school juniors to talk with the same people who may read their college applications in the fall. It’s also a chance for freshmen and sophomores to gather information to help them set preliminary college goals.

The fair is free and open to students and parents from around the region.

Representatives from schools that offer four-year and two-year degrees as well as one-year certificate programs will be in attendance. For more information, call Garrath Higgins at (802) 482-7137 or email ghiggins@cvsdvt.org.

Publicly funded preschool registration open

The Champlain Valley School District is enrolling for the 2018-2019 year for preschoolers between the ages of 3 and 5 who reside in Williston, Charlotte, Hinesburg, Shelburne and St. George.

This publicly funded program covers 10 hours a week of learning based on Vermont’s early learning standards for 35 weeks.

Children must be at least 3 years old on or before Sept. 1 to qualify for preschool funding. Children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 are eligible for kindergarten and not eligible for preschool funding.

There are several public and private programs that qualify as publicly funded preschools. A list of eligible centers can be found at education.vermont.gov.

Go to earlyedcvsdvt.weebly.com to find a registration packet for students in the Champlain Valley School District. Students enrolling in a program outside of a public school building must be enrolled with the district to receive public funding as well as with their private preschool.

More information is available by contacting Wendy Clark at wclark@cvsdvt.org or 985-1903 or Sherry Carlson at scarlson380@comcast.net.
