Posted April 01, 2013
The Auburn Rotary Club recently hosted Jan Hume (center), director of Alabama’s Office of School Readiness. Established by the Alabama Legislature in 2000, OSR establishes collaborations with pre-kindergarten programs throughout the state to provide Alabama's 4-year-old children with effective early childhood experiences and prepare them for school. Currently, the program, which is considered a national exemplar, includes more than 215 pre-K programs, for which the state provides technical assistance, teacher training, and classroom funding.
