The Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County, Inc. is happy to report that Ms. Aruna Gilbert, Chief Program Officer, has been appointed to the Florida Legislature's Committee on Early Grade Success as of August 31, 2017. During the 2017 Legislative Session, House Bill 1229 was passed.

This legislation created the Committee on Early Grade Success, within the Department of Education to develop a proposal for establishing and implementing a coordinated child assessment system for the School Readiness Program, the Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program, and the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment.

We congratulate her for receiving this appointment and look forward to her input, as the Committee's trajectory and decisions will make an impact on the children and families we serve here in Palm Beach County and all throughout Florida!
