Date Issued: May, 2015

Description: CEELO staff requested information from state early education administrators on the National Association of Early Childhood Specialists in State Department of Education (NAECS-SDE) listserve. CEELO also reviewed information in the NIEER, State of Preschool 2013, Appendix A--state survey questions related to eligibility. This paper summarizes information from the following states: Colorado, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington. Finally, we analyzed the themes that emerged in light of questions that have been posed from states, and present some vignettes that illustrate challenges that states and districts are facing as they consider how to best align eligibility criteria and verification processes.
