PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo is hosting a conversation about her priorities for preschool and kindergarten in the state.

The Democrat is holding a Monday morning summit in Providence.

She says she wants to keep the momentum going after the state last year made all-day kindergarten universal. She says her focus is on getting kids reading at their grade levels.

Her education spending proposal this year includes $1.2 million to expand pre-kindergarten options for young learners.

She’s scheduled to be joined at the summit by educators, other elected officials and a former director of early learning programs in the state of Washington.
