New study measures effectiveness of Teaching Strategies GOLD® Assessment to prepare Pre-K 4 SA children for kindergarten and beyond.
BETHESDA, Md. (November 13, 2017) – “Pre-K 4 SA opened its doors in 2013 to 4-year-olds across San Antonio with a goal of delivering high-quality early childhood education to families who may not have access otherwise,” Pre-K 4 SA Board Chair Elaine Mendoza said. “The results indicate we are succeeding in a big way.”
Mendoza said Pre-K 4 SA prepares about 2,000 children for kindergarten each year, adding that it is on track to change the educational and workforce trajectory of San Antonio within one generation.
The study, which was conducted by Westat Inc., measured the effectiveness of the program using the Teaching Strategies GOLD® Assessment.
