Countdown to Kindergarten Targeted Grant Application - SC First Steps

Countdown to Kindergarten Targeted Grant Application

The Countdown to Kindergarten targeted grants are for local First Steps partnerships to implement Countdown to Kindergarten and Countdown to 4K programs. The programs pair families of rising kindergartners and 4K students at risk for school challenges with their future teachers during the summer before school entry. Teachers complete six visits with each family, centered on classroom and content expectations. Funding is available for Standard Countdown, Countdown with Supports for Students with Disabilities, and Countdown with Supports for Dual Language Learner families.
