MINISINK VALLEY CENTRAL SCHOOL DISTRICT UNIVERSAL PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
The Minisink Valley Central School District is a participant in the New York State Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program that is offered annually through a grant. The UPK program offers a limited amount of spots to qualifying families residing in the school district.
