The Cincinnati Preschool Promise Board of Managers

The Cincinnati Preschool Promise Board of Managers leads the preschool expansion effort in Cincinnati, as passed by voters in November 2016 as part of the five-year Cincinnati Public Schools levy. The board oversees strategic direction to ensure families are able to use preschool tuition assistance and community-based preschool providers are given support to increase quality.

The board consists of 15 people, including local leaders with diverse backgrounds and professional experiences. This includes parents, educators, preschool providers, business leaders and community leaders. Board members were nominated by the Cincinnati Preschool Alliance, Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) and the United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC).
