SDE: School Readiness Documents

School Readiness Documents

The School Readiness ALERT system has been revised and streamlined into two categories: General Policy (GP) and Program Operations (PO). The GPs provide guidance for School Readiness Councils to implement school readiness and quality enhancement programs. The POs provide guidance to subgrantees to implement school readiness and quality enhancement programs. GPs and POs will be posted on the State Department of Education Web site and disseminated to mayors, superintendents, school readiness chairs and liaisons who in turn shall disseminate to all sub-grantees. Each GP and PO is numbered to correspond to the state fiscal year starting in January of 2009.
