DPP 2008-09 and 2009-10 cohort third grade TCAP results

The Denver Preschool Program School (DPP) began operations in 2007. Since then, over $55 million in tuition support has helped over 31,000 Denver four-year-olds attend a quality-rated preschool. The 2008-09 school year was the first year of full operation of DPP. Students who participated in DPP in 2008-09 entered third grade in the Denver Public Schools (DPS) in the 2012-13 school year and participated along with other Colorado third graders in Colorado's standardized testing system, the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP). Students who participated in DPP in the 2009-10 school year, entered the third grade in DPS in the 2013-14 school year and participated along with other third grade students from across the state in the TCAP. There are now two years of third grade TCAP data on students who applied and were approved to participate in DPP four years earlier. This memo describes the evidence about whether students who participate in DPP in the year before kindergarten are more likely to reach proficient or advanced levels on third grade TCAP assessments, than students who did not participate in DPP.
