Early childhood education in Nebraska public school districts and Educational Service Units: 2012-2013 state report

This report examines the characteristics and participant outcomes of public early childhood education programs in Nebraska. In 2012-2013, these programs served 12,970 children and received more than $55 million in support. The majority of infant and toddler and preschool classrooms met state quality standards, based on observations by approved observers. More than 70 percent of children in these programs demonstrated substantial gains on child assessments, with many more children meeting or exceeding expectations on these assessments in the spring than in the fall. Programs also succeeded in meeting mandated targets for preschool children with disabilities. More than half the children who had previously attended the state's program for at risk children met or exceeded expectations on state elementary, middle, and high school assessments in reading, writing, math, and science.
