School Readiness


March 22, 2021


Important Program Updates for New School Readiness Enrollments/Families:



Pending Family Acceptance (PFA)
Added Functionality to the Statewide Office of Early Learning (OEL) Family Portal

  • When a new School Readiness enrollment is created for an eligible child, families must accept the terms and conditions, establish their consent for developmental screening and/or child assessment, and sign the payment certificate. Too often, families are not completing these steps and the child’s enrollment remains in the PFA status.  
    • In February, OEL initiated an automated email notification to families that is sent every five days until these steps are completed and the enrollment status changes from “Pending Family Acceptance” to “Enrolled.”
  • New School Readiness families are encouraged to log in to their Statewide OEL Family Portal account and complete the necessary enrollment steps by clicking the “Sign” button for the payment certificate.
