Public Preschool Funding 2018-19

The Maine State Legislature has provided start-up funding in FY19 state budget for public school districts to begin new or expand preschool classrooms.

The Maine Department of Education requires information from school districts anticipating starting new or expanding current public preschool programs in 2018-19.  Expanded programs are those in SAUs that currently run approved public preschool(s) and want to add another classroom(s).

In order to be included in the state start-up preschool funding count, you must complete this survey NO LATER than Tuesday, October 31, 2017. 

Please estimate high for anticipated preschool enrollment so that the Maine DOE may budget accordingly. Prek counts may not exceed district kindergarten enrollment as of October 1, 2017.

This survey is only meant to capture the level of interest in accessing funding provided by the Legislature and does not guarantee funding.
