Dubuque Non-Profit Transfers Preschool

A Dubuque non-profit has to transfer management of a federal preschool program due to financial troubles. Operation New View manages the head start preschool program for Dubuque, Jackson and Delaware counties. Head start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children from low-income homes. In a press release the organization says its’ faced several years of financial management issues with the program. Last year the board of directors brought in an interim executive director to make changes. It finally concluded that the funding was inadequate to support the interest the board had for the program. Board chair Steve Drahozal says they’re transferring the program to Community Development Institute. He says the transition will be seamless for children and families in the program. In addition current staff will be offered to keep their jobs.
