Benefits of 4K

  • A quality 4K program helps all children come to school prepared to learn. 

  • Evidence suggests that teaching at-risk children before they reach kindergarten helps keep students in school and prevents students from dropping out, going to jail, and receiving welfare. They also are more likely to graduate from high school, find employment, and pay taxes.

  • Enhancement of learning opportunities for 4-year-old children
  • Opportunities to participate in parent education and training. A minimum of 87.5 hours of parent opportunities will be made available for parents and guardians.
  • Reduced special education placement costs (approx. $42 Million)
  • Reduction in retentions in higher grades
  • A DPI -certified teacher in all 4K classrooms
  • A positive partnership between community organizations, community sites, schools, and parents..
