The Board recognizes the critical importance of the early years in determining the educational development of children, and authorizes schools to establish and maintain pre-kindergarten programming.

Pre-Kindergarten programs will meet all federal and state requirements and follow a comprehensive, sequential curriculum, which is geared to the individual child and emphasizes educational purposes. The programs will be offered to eligible children.

The superintendent is charged to implement preschool programs, including age-eligibility and other requirements, when such programs are authorized by the board.
