Public Schools Groups Tout Suite Of Bills Promoting Early Childhood, Special Education

* Kolowski also introduced a bill (LB887) changing provisions of the state-aid formula allowing schools to include 100 percent of 3- and 4-year-olds. Currently, schools can count 60 percent of their 4-year-old students in the state-aid formula, and no 3-year-olds. This would allow districts that don’t receive state equalization aid to receive support for early childhood programs.
