In response to our public records request, the Hillsborough County School District provided pricing and payment information about Leto Little, the preschool operated at Leto High School.

Leto Little was in the news recently because of an allegation that School Board member Susan Valdes used her position to arrange free child care for her grandchild. The state Commission on Ethics is investigating. Valdes says the complaint has no merit.

We wanted to know  a) Who is eligible for the program, which gets some public funding; and  b) If there is a way a child can attend for free.

The answers, given in greater detail here, are as follows: Family members of employees, including grandchildren, can attend. And while the school itself cannot waive the fees, parents in need can seek out assistance from a variety of organizations outside the school district.
