Expansion of a Public School Operated Prekindergarten Education Program
of survey complete.
Prior approval from the Agencies of Education and Human Services must be received before a school district may expand a school operated prekindergarten education program. School districts are required to use this application to request permission to expand a current school operated PreK program. This new requirement applies to all school districts whether they choose to offer universal prekindergarten education starting in 2015 or 2016; it replaces the community needs assessment school districts were required to complete under Act 62.
"Expansion" is defined as when a district seeks to increase the number of children served in a school operated program, and such increase will require additional teachers and/or classrooms.
Responses to completed applications will be provided within thirty (30) business days from submission of a complete application.
