Missouri State Senate


SB 133 – 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 who are eligible for free and reduced lunch. 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.
