Mercer County School District Pre-K Programs Moving to Joy Next Year

The Mercer County School District is relocating Pre-K next school year. Pre-K programs will be moved to the current Mercer County Junior High School in Joy. The move was approved at Wednesday night’s school board meeting. Unit 404 Superintendent Scott Petrie explains the move.

The Joy building will not serve as the Junior High next school year, as sixth, seventh and eighth grade students will attend the current Mercer County Intermediate School in Aledo. For now, the Pre-K move to Joy is just for the 2022-23 school year.
