Prekindergarten outcomes for Texas public school students

Students enrolled in one of the early cohorts of prekindergarten classes in the 1999-2000 school year would be 21 in the fall of 2016. In an attempt to examine the state's long-term investment in prekindergarten, the agency analyzed three different cohorts of prekindergarten participants to assess immediate, short-term, and long-term academic outcomes, including: - Prekindergartners in 1999-2000, examining outcomes through 2014-2015 with a specific focus on high school completion and college persistence to-date - Prekindergartners in 2010-2011, examining outcomes through 2014-2015 with a specific focus on academic achievement indicators up to the Grade 3 State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) - Prekindergartners in 2014-2015, examining outcomes through 2015-2016 with a specific focus on kindergarten readiness (author abstract)
