Kindergarten to College (K2C): A First-in-the-Nation Initiative to Set All Kindergartners on the Path to College. Asset Building Program
Phillips, Leigh; Stuhldreher, Anne
New America Foundation
In the Spring of 2011, the City of San Francisco automatically opened college savings accounts for over 1,000 San Francisco Kindergartners. The City also "seeded" every account with an initial deposit of $50. The account openings marked the official launch of San Francisco's Kindergarten to College initiative, or "K2C." This initiative, the first of its kind in the nation, aims to improve the odds for San Francisco Kindergartners and set all San Francisco public school children on a path to college, from the very first day of school. This case study provides an overview of Kindergarten to College (K2C), why city leaders started it, and how it works. Resources and Key Contacts are appended. (Contains 19 footnotes.)
