Legislative Update

The school aid formula is a statement of our commitment to equality, quality and improving educational outcomes. School funding says much about goals for public education – and children. In 2008, the Legislature and Governor included a provision in the state aid formula to expand New Jersey’s state-funded pre-k for more 3- and 4-year-olds. It was never funded.

Is Pre-K Coming Your Way?

Today, as the Legislature and Governor consider correcting some inequities in the existing formula, it is time to fund pre-k as a critical educational improvement. There is no more important educational investment for New Jersey than to expand our successful, high-quality pre-k to more students. Let your legislators know that you want pre-k!

Where your children live shouldn’t determine whether or not they have access to Pre-K.

Today, under existing law, there are 35 communities with pre-k for 3- and 4-year-olds.

Under that same law, the number should now be nearly 140 districts.

The law allows that the existing program should be extended for all at-risk 3- and 4-year-olds in all New Jersey communities.
