Florence City Schools received a grant that will help educate some of its youngest students.
The $1.2 million grant will be used to build four new classrooms at W.C. Handy School to educate children from six weeks to three years old.
The money comes from a "Preschool Development Grant, Birth-Five" from the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education.
That program will begin at Florence City Schools at the start of the 2020-2021 school year in August.
The district says participation in the new program will have a tuition cost, and before and after-school care will be available.
