The state of pre-k in the District of Columbia: 2014 pre-k report

Pursuant to the reporting requirements of the Pre-K Act, OSSE produces an annual report on the status of pre-k in the District addressing the following: (1) the quality of current public pre-k programs; (2) the capacity of public pre-k programs and the manner in which Head Start programs are incorporated into the early learning system; and (3) the current status of pre-k education in all sectors, including the status of monitoring, assessment, and quality improvement -- all core components of a robust accountability processes. In addition, this report outlines key Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14) performance and service delivery trends and concludes with recommendations for ensuring the District continues its investments in pre-k and build upon what works, in order to realize its goals for all residents. This year's pre-k annual report is particularly significant as FY14, which aligns with the 2013-2014 School Year (SY), is the benchmark year, as established in the Pre-K Act, for the District to implement a universally-accessible, high-quality pre-k program for all children in the District of Columbia. "Universal" pre-k is defined as pre-k that is available for any child, regardless of the child's abilities and family income. OSSE is pleased to report that the District of Columbia met the FY14 requirement of the Pre-K Act, thereby providing "universal" access to pre-k in FY14 for its residents. (author abstract)
