WHITTIER – A bill that would create a statewide pre-kindergarten program for all 4-year-olds has the support of Whittier-area educators – as long as the state provides the money to fund it, officials said Wednesday. Linda Welch, assistant superintendent at the East Whittier City School District, said AB 1236 by Assemblyman Gene Mullin, D-San Francisco – also known as the Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2008 – could be great for children, but only if the state picks up the tab without shifting the financial burden onto local school districts. The bill calls for a “kindergarten readiness program” for 4-year-olds to be implemented by public schools by the 2011-12 fiscal year. It would make three-hour readiness classes funded by the state available to pre-kindergarten students on a voluntary basis. But Welch said her district would prefer that the state first “fully fund the programs we have going on now, before adding another to our plate.” Mullin’s proposal also contains a component that would change the starting age for incoming kindergartners. It would move the birthday cut-off date for eligible kindergartners from Dec. 2 to Sept. 1, beginning in 2011. In an average class of 20 kindergartners, there may be two or three students whose birthdays fall after Sept. 1, Maya said. Moving back the cut-off date would be beneficial because some of the younger children lack the maturity for kindergarten, Welch said. “Typically, you can walk into a classroom and pick out the 4-year-olds,” she said. But Maya believes that removing children whose birthdays fall in that three-month gap could hurt districts that are already experiencing declining enrollments. “We would need to be very careful about that. It should be something we transition into over time,” Maya said. [email protected] (562) 698-0955 Ext. 3051 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But the bill has strong support from the California Teachers Association, one of its sponsors. On Wednesday, CTA President Barbara Kerr testified in Sacramento on behalf of the proposal. “AB 1226 will help prepare all students … and make sure they are ready for kindergarten,” Kerr said in a statement. “It will provide all California children with an equal opportunity to succeed.” Marty Maya, assistant superintendent at the Little Lake City School District in Santa Fe Springs, said the program would be a “positive way to ensure the readiness of students is where it should be.” The bill also would make kindergarten compulsory beginning in 2010.
