Highlights from the evaluation of Georgia's 2014 Rising Kindergarten and Rising Pre-Kindergarten Summer Transition Programs

Building on the success of Georgia's Pre-K, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) has been offering a program for children during the summer before kindergarten since 2010. In the summer of 2014, this Rising Kindergarten (RK) Program was offered in 62 classrooms in 24 counties, serving over 1,000 children. The Rising Pre-Kindergarten (RPre-K) Program was modeled on the RK program, but serves children the summer prior to the Pre-K year and is tailored to meet the needs of families and children who speak Spanish at home. In the summer of 2014, the second year this program was offered, there were 20 RPre-K classrooms in 10 counties, serving approximately 275 children. In 2014, both programs offered services for six weeks during the summer. (author abstract)
