New minimum age requirement for preschool takes effect this fall

As a result of Kentucky House Bill 235, changes were made in the Kentucky State-Funded Preschool Program. A new minimum age requirement for state-funded preschool students will take effect this fall, moving from Oct. 1 to Aug. 1. Beginning in school year 2014-15, children who are 4 years old by Aug. 1 are age-eligible for the state-funded preschool program. In addition, the income eligibility requirement will change from 150% of poverty in 2014-15 to 160% of poverty in 2015-16. The attachment below provides more information.
