Join us on Tuesday, October 3 for the first Policy Hour of the new season! After a long, drawn out session, there were a number of policy initiatives that passed that impact early childhood, including a new program called School Readiness Plus. The Minnesota Department of Education will give us an update on this program, as well as Voluntary Pre-K and answer our questions.
