Sheboygan, Wis. (WHBL) - Staff and parents are showing their support of the Early Learning Center in Sheboygan, and voiced their concerns about possible closures of the school at Tuesday night's school board meeting. Many staff members showed up, all in their staff sweatshirts, and presented the school board with some thinking points, as the board is investigating the cost savings involved in shutting down the center. Jacqueline Isler, who helps special needs children at the center, is proud of what the district has done over the years and how they have been visionary in it's leadership in early childhood. She says they have been nationally and internationally recognized for their efforts, and thinks the board really needs to take a look at the impact the closure would have on the community. Superintendant Joe Sheehan says that if the board would decide to close the Early Learning Center, all of the preschool programs would be moved to their home schools. The Early Learning Center, which was remodeled from an old strip mall, has been in operation on Wilson Avenue for around 20 years.
