What is Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten?

Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) is an educational program that school districts may apply for on an annual basis and is funded by state and local funds. If a school district is awarded the funding, the school district may implement a Voluntary Pre-K classroom within an existing school.

The purpose of the program is to provide four-year-old children identified as being educationally and economically at-risk with access to a quality educational environment, in effort to prepare them for future educational success. The program is of no cost to parents/guardians.

  

 What is the eligibility to participate in the Voluntary Pre-K program?

Student admission into the Voluntary Pre-K (VPK) program is determined by income eligibility, as well as a screening process. Please see the attached income guidelines. Other factors to be considered are:

  • No child who is eligible for Kindergarten (five years of age on or before August 15, 2017) may be enrolled in the VPK program.
