READI funds will be used to install an outdoor classroom with playground equipment. The EEC opened in August 2022 in the former Brown County Intermediate School, with 70 high school students participating in early learning workforce training opportunities at the center. While Brown County Schools has remodeled the former school, the outdoor space has not yet been updated for use by children under the age of six.
