RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The Rutherford Board of Education is considering the addition of a preschool program to begin in September 2016, NorthJersey.com reports .

The board has scheduled a Dec. 7 vote on the proposal from Schools Supt. Jack Hurley to take in 80 preschool children — with 15 free slots reserved for special-education toddlers — for 3- and 4-year-old community youngsters, the report says.

The half-day preschool program would be held at Lincoln and Washington schools, under Hurley's plan. Slots would be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, with tuition of $3,000 a year, NorthJersey.com reports.

Hurley told NorthJersey.com tthat he believes the new program would save the district money by offsetting the money the BOE spends to send special-education students to preschool programs outside the district.
