  • Page 30…the State of Preschool 2011 report (nieer.org) More info can be found in this report. Alabama has offered state-funded preschool for 4-year-olds since 2000 through the Alabama Pre-Kindergarten Program, which was renamed First Class: Alabama’s Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten Program in the 2008-2009 school year. While the only eligibility requirements for the program are meeting the age criteria and being a resident of the state of Alabama, enrollment has remained low due to limited resources. An increase in state-funding during the 2007-2008 school year allowed the program to expand its access and also provide technical assistance and scholarships for teachers working toward completing their degrees. However, the program was flat-funded in the 2010-2011 school year and enrollment remained the same as a consequence. Program sites are determined through a competitive grant process and can include public schools, private child care centers, Head Start centers, faith-based centers, colleges and universities, community organizations, and military agencies. Grantees must provide a local match of the grant award, which varies by location. These matching funds can include sliding scale parent fees. The state has made progress toward its goal of having at least one classroom per county. In the 2010-2011 school year, classrooms were available in all but three counties. In the 2005-2006 school year, teacher certification standards were revised to require new hires to have specialized training in early childhood education. Since then, the program has met all 10 of the NIEER quality benchmarks. In the 2008-2009 school year, the program was evaluated for both process quality and program impact/child outcomes. The Office of School Readiness and the state Department of Education’s Special Education Services established an aligned set of standards for pre-K children, which were scheduled to be implemented in the 2011-2012 school year. Pre-K in Alabama received significant support from the state’s business community in the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 school years. Business leaders notably recommended funding increases for pre-K to the state Legislature. The Business Council of Alabama and the Alabama School Readiness Alliance are developing policy recommendations for expanding access to high-quality voluntary pre-K.
