Preschool Program Guidelines.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Child Development.
Intended for persons interested in operating preschool programs in California, these guidelines provide basic information on student eligibility, program requirements, and fiscal reporting. The first section provides background information on California preschool programs. Characteristics affecting children's eligibility for preschool services are pointed out in the second section. The third section provides a description of preschool programs. Subsequent sections discuss (1) parent involvement in preschool programs; (2) local agency/district application, fiscal, and reporting procedures; and (3) personnel and staffing. Materials related to operating a preschool program in California are appended, such as the State Preschool Waiver Request (Form CD-7701) and the Inventory Register (Form CD-8604). These guidelines are a revision of previous guidelines and apply specifically to the California State Preschool Program and to other preschool programs funded through the Consolidated Programs Division. While they may be useful to other public and private preschools, it is emphasized that the focus of these guidelines is not on the preschool curriculum. (RH)
