PURPOSE: To provide the Yonkers City School District with additional

Prekindergarten enrollment multiplied by the difference between the
District's selected Foundation Aid pre pupil and the District's

implemented Universal Prekindergarten Program in its schools that has
been regarded as a model for other districts and had a significant

their commitment to serving the needs of its prekindergarten
population totaling $4.8 million.
