Preschool tuition increased for next school year

by Carolina King

Ouray School Board voted Monday night to approve an increase in preschool tuition from $410 per month for the full-day program to $500 per month. The increase still keeps Ouray Preschool at the lowest cost in the area. Ridgway School Board voted last month to increase its preschool tuition from $500 to $640 per month.
Rebecca Hazen, preschool lead teacher, said, “It seems to fit in with the trend that is happening in the county.” She said the increase will help make ends meet for the program and support “our amazing kiddos.”
Elementary Principal Kenneth Nelson said the increase reflects the fact that there are two highly qualified teachers on staff at the preschool and the general cost of running the program has increased.
