Crow Creek Head Start program reopened 5-9-07

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Head Start program on the Crow Creek Indian
Reservation will reopen after more than a year of being closed,
Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson's office said Wednesday.

The program was shut down by the Health and Human Services Department
due to funding shortfalls and substandard building conditions. There
are no alternatives for pre-school education on the South Dakota
reservation, a Johnson release said.

The senator's office said the department has now approved a $112,179
grant to fund the program through the summer. Funding will then
continue indefinitely.

“Studies have shown that for every dollar invested in Head Start
education, society gets a return of more than $9 in other benefits,”
Johnson said in a statement. “This is an investment in our
communities that reaps amazing returns.”
