6. What is the difference between the two types of pre-K funding: Statewide Universal

Posted by:

Full-Day Prekindergarten (SUFDPK - Education Law 3602-ee) and the Federal Expansion grant?

We, like 231 other districts, are receiving this funding for the first time under the Federal Expansion grant.  As a result of this $970 million increase, 623 out of the 675 (92%) school districts throughout the state will now have pre-K funding.  The SUFDPK refers to funding that was previously available to districts through NYSED.  Brewster has not received SUFDPK funding in the past nor is allocated for it in the 2021-22 school year.
