The consolidated School District of Plemons-Stinnett-Phillips Consolidated Independent School District is teaming up with Region 16 Education Service Center.

No early childhood centers are available in the community, and officials with Region 16 say the PSP CISD identified the challenge of recruiting and retaining quality staff with young children throughout the district during its strategic planning process.to launch their Early Learning Academy which will further aid early learners in the community when it begins in August.

Officials noted that the PSP CISD and Region 16 partnership will highlight the “collaborative spirit” of both parties and will ensure effective leadership and guidance of the initiative with the appointment of Amanda Cothrin, M.Ed. as executive director of the PSP CISD Early Learning Academy.
