Indiana to expand pre-K pilot program after high demand

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana has received 1,800 applications from families who want to take part in a pre-school pilot program.

The program is focused on early education for four-year-olds.

Governor Mike Pence says the response to the "On My Way Pre-K" program confirms the need for high-quality early education for the state's most disadvantaged children.

The goal for the first phase of the program was to enroll 350 children. Due to the high demand, Pence says the state will now enroll an additional 100 children.

A randomized lottery will determine which children will be selected.
