SUMMARY OF THE 2006 ACTS AND RESOLVES

ACT NO. 186

(S.314)

Prekindergarten education

This act establishes a prekindergarten education study committee to gather information and make recommendations about what the research says about the effects of prekindergarten education, whether prekindergarten education services should be offered at public expense, and, if so, how the public program should be structured and funded. The act further prohibits the state board of education from changing any rules regarding early childhood education before the committee has finished its work, and stipulates that a school district which begins a new program of prekindergarten education during school year 2007-2008 must contract with qualified early childhood education service providers in the district.

Effective Date: July 1, 2006
