The Early Learning Collaborative Act of 2013: Evaluation of the operations and effectiveness of the program

Description:
Because fiscal years 2014 through 2016 represented the first phase of funding for Mississippi's prekindergarten program under the Early Learning Collaborative Act of 2013, the Legislature will need information for the 2016 Legislative Session to determine whether to continue or expand the program for the next phase of funding beginning in FY 2017. Therefore, the purpose of this report is to present an independent evaluation of the operation and effectiveness of Mississippi's prekindergarten program established under the Early Learning Collaborative Act that will be useful for decisionmakers when considering the program's next phase of funding. This report will address: the creation and purpose of the prekindergarten program; the statutory requirements of the prekindergarten program; the funding appropriated to the prekindergarten program and how the funds have been disbursed; the statewide assessment for measuring the readiness of prekindergarten students for kindergarten; an evaluation of the program's operations and effectiveness; and, PEER's independent evaluation of program effectiveness.
