Voters in Multnomah County overwhelmingly supported “Preschool for All” on Nov. 3, 2020 with 64 percent of voters approving the measure to extend early education to children across the county. Preschool for All (PFA) will give 3 and 4 year olds in Multnomah County access to free, high-quality, developmentally appropriate, culturally responsive preschool experiences.
Multnomah County is now looking for community members passionate about racial justice and early childhood education for the Preschool for All (PFA) Advisory Committee. The ballot measure requires the creation of the group to help guide the program’s implementation. The PFA Advisory Committee will be established to review program expenditures, advise evaluation efforts, and review data and make policy recommendations to the Department of County Human Services, which is responsible for implementing Preschool for All.
Interested community members can learn more and apply on the Preschool for All website.
