Evaluating the Effectiveness of Tennessee's Voluntary Pre-K Program

Districts, Schools, & Teachers

Though we are finished with classroom observations, we will continue to follow participating children and assess them in their schools each year.

Even if your school does not have a pre-k, it is very likely that one of our participating students has found their way into your school!

Presentations that we make to schools and/or districts will be posted here for 30 days following the presentation, so check back often for updates!
