Current Bill Summary

SB 132 – This act would allow a school district that operates a pre-kindergarten program to receive state funding through the foundation formula for students between the ages of three and five. The district must provide full-day kindergarten and meet standards established by the State Board of Education. This act would become effective in the school year after the school year in which the foundation formula is fully funded and would remain in effect in any succeeding year. This act does not require school attendance beyond what is required under the state's compulsory attendance law and does not change or modify the state's kindergarten attendance age statutes.

This section is also contained in HB 596 (2013).
