The Department of Early Learning, OSPI, and the Educational Service Districts hosted a K-20 video conference on expanding preschool opportunities for children within school districts.

The video conference provided an opportunity for school district staff and early learning providers to explore how school districts can support preschool providers in their communities and, when it makes sense, how school districts might expand preschool programs operated by their districts. The videoconference included examples of how school districts have supported community preschools, how districts have blended state and federal resources to operate preschools, and information about the availability of additional ECEAP slots beginning in the 2014-15 school year.
