CMS is closing all five of its pre-kindergarten centers as part of budget cuts. These centers include a portion of the Bright Beginnings program. This past year about 2,900 kids were in Bright Beginnings classes, just over half of them at the pre-k centers. The district says it won't be clear how many fewer students the program will serve next year until a state budget is approved. CMS officials say if the cuts are smaller than expected, the Bright Beginnings classes will move to other district schools.
