Pre-K 4 SA (formerly Brainpower Initiative)

Mayor Julian Castro’s proposal of a 1/8 % sales tax to raise money for pre-K programs is now called “Pre-K 4 SA.” (Formerly, it was called the “Brainpower Initiative.”)

On August 1, the city council heard a presentation about Pre-K 4 SA and asked questions. Next week, the council is likely to vote to put the sales tax increase on the November ballot.
