Early learning coalition of Pasco County, Inc. releases 2012-2013 annual report

Pasco County, Florida -- The Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties, Inc. has released its 2012-2013 Annual Report. In its cover letter, Executive Director James J. Farrelly said, “considering the national economy, the 2012-2013 year continued as a challenging one for our organization. With minimal increase in total revenue however, the Coalition served more School Readiness eligible children than the previous year.”

The Early Learning Coalition's responsibilities include the Voluntary Prekindergarten Program (VPK) in both Pasco and Hernando counties and the School Readiness program for income eligible families in both counties.

A total of 5,475 School Readiness children were served in Pasco County during the 2012-2013 year. This reflects an increase of 73 more children than in 2011-2012. As of the end of the fiscal year, there were zero (0) children ages birth through eight (8) on the waiting list for School Readiness services. A total of 4,279 children were enrolled in the 2012-2013 VPK program year. This represents an increase of 45 children over the 2011-2012 VPK program year.

A total of 1,852 School Readiness children were served in Hernando County during the 2012-2013 year, representing an increase of 14 children over the 2011-2012 numbers. There were two (2) children ages birth through eight (8) on the waiting list for School Readiness as of the end of the fiscal year. A total of 1,325 children were enrolled in the 2012-2013 VPK program year. This reflects a very slight decrease in children served over the 2011-2012 program year.

The coalition’s budget was over $13.5 million in 2012-2013 for School Readiness and over $12.6 million for the Voluntary Prekindergarten Program.
