San Antonio Implements Full-Day Pre-K Program
“Pre-K 4 SA” is a full-day Pre-K program for four-year-olds in San Antonio. Before- and afterschool care, breakfast and lunch are included, and transportation is available. It was started under Mayor Julian Castro as a result of community conversations about priorities for San Antonio in 2011 and was funded through a 1/8 cent increase in the city sales tax. There were two education centers in 2013-2014 and this number has now increased to four.
