Pre-K Summer Transition Program

DECAL will again administer the Summer Transition Program (STP) during the 2016 summer. STP is a six-week intensive academic program for rising kindergarteners who meet the following criteria:

  • Did not attend a Georgia’s Pre K or Head Start program or attended Georgia’s Pre-K or Head Start but need additional academic support before entering kindergarten.
  • Families meet eligibility requirements for Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS); 85% of the state median income.

The program will operate during June and July offering high-quality instruction with a focus on language, literacy and math. The experience is designed to reduce the achievement gap by providing additional family support and resources to targeted high needs populations.
