TEA awards more than $116 million as part of Gov. Abbott's high quality pre-K initiativeCommissioner of Education Mike Morath announced that 578 school systems across Texas will be awarded more than $116 million in grants as part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s high-quality prekindergarten initiative.

13. 7. 2016

In 2015, Gov. Abbott declared early education a legislative priority. The 84th Texas Legislature went on to pass – and Gov. Abbott signed into law – House Bill 4, which established additional state support for all public school districts and open-enrollment charter schools seeking to expand high-quality prekindergarten programs.

“Implementation of this important grant program, which remains a priority of Gov. Abbott, provides important educational support to our youngest Texans,” said Commissioner Morath. “By working to ensure and expand high quality prekindergarten programs across our state, we take an important step toward ensuring every child is prepared for the classroom from the very first day.”

Following the application period, school systems have been formally notified by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) of the final grant awards. Funding will be used by districts to implement pre-k programs in the 2016-2017 school year.
