Bill Title: Prekindergarten pilot program eligibility. Amends requirements for eligibility for the prekindergarten pilot program (program) to include an eligible child who resides with: (1) a parent or guardian who is: (A) disabled and unable, as a result of the disability, to work or attend job training or an educational program; or (B) absent, for a limited period of time, from working or attending a job training or an education program as a result of an illness or caring for a family member; or (2) the eligible child's grandparent or great-grandparent. (Current law requires that, to be eligible for the program, an eligible child reside with a parent or guardian who is working, attending job training or an educational program, or actively seeking employment.) Provides that the office of the secretary of family and social services may not implement or continue to implement these new eligibility requirements if implementing or continuing to implement the provisions would result in the state losing federal funds under the federal Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) grant program. Removes a provision specifying that priority under the program may be given to an eligible child if a parent or guardian of the eligible child is: (1) involved in activities that improve the parent's or guardian's education; or (2) involved in job training.
