HB99 Enhanced Kindergarten Amendments

Data and research shows that more time for in-classroom learning, paired with quality instruction, makes a difference for kids who are at-risk of academic failure. Knowing this program can be a game changer for children, United Way is supporting Representative Snow’s bill, HB99 Enhanced Kindergarten Amendments to expand the optional extended-day kindergarten program.

HB114 Early Learning Training and Assessment Amendments

We know that a strong early educational foundation is essential for children as they grow. There are many factors that contribute to a student’s academic performance, including individual, family, and neighborhood characteristics, but teachers matter more to student achievement than any other school-related factor.

Representative Waldrip is running a bill, HB114 Early Learning Training and Assessment Amendments, aimed at supporting teachers and students in preschool through 3rd grade. The bill promotes strategies that are proven to support teachers in learning and employing best teaching practices, and in creating systems that support quality instruction and student outcomes.
