Oregon Statutes - Chapter 329 - Oregon Educational Act for the 21st Century; Educational Improvement and Reform - Section 329.185 - Expansion of Oregon prekindergarten program.

When the federal Head Start program provides funding for programs for eligible children at or greater than the 1990-1991 per child level, eligibility for the state funded Oregon prekindergarten program shall be expanded to include programs for children whose family income exceeds the federal Head Start limits or who are in an underserved or unserved age category. After determining the increase in income limits or age level that would make children most in need of state programs eligible for them, the State Board of Education may direct expenditure of any unexpended or unobligated funds appropriated for the biennium for eligible children to be expended for the additional children considered to be most in need. In the following biennium, the State Board of Education shall include the cost of any added program for the children most in need in its biennial budget. [Formerly 326.815; 1995 c.660 §19; 2001 c.831 §18]

Note: 329.185 was added to and made a part of ORS chapter 329 by legislative action but was not added to 329.170 to 329.200. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
