An act to provide an apportionment to the Yonkers city school district based upon universal prekindergarten enrollment

PURPOSE :

To provide the Yonkers City School District with additional aid equal to the District's Universal Prekindergarten enrollment for the 2009-2010 school year multiplied by the difference between the District's selected Foundation Aid per pupil and the District's Universal Prekindergarten Grant per pupil.
