How was PRE4CLE developed?

Cleveland’s Plan for Transforming Schools, a plan to fundamentally reinvent public education in Cleveland, specifically called for a plan to expand and support high-quality preschool education across the city.

The Cleveland Early Childhood Compact is a group of organizations and individuals who represent early childhood development, education, civic, business, labor, government and philanthropy. They came together to develop an implementation plan, called PRE4CLE, to provide Cleveland’s 3- and 4-year-old children with high-quality preschool experiences that help build the academic and social skills they need to be successful in kindergarten, school and life. It is chaired by Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) Chief Executive Officer Eric Gordon and Marcia Egbert, Senior Program Officer for Human Services at The George Gund Foundation – a true public-private partnership.
