Data continues to show that students who attend Dallas ISD pre-K go on to academically outperform eligible students who do not attend Dallas ISD pre-K.

Derek Little, assistant superintendent of Early Learning, briefed trustees on Sept. 13 about how pre-K is setting up students for lifelong success. Little showed trustees the 2017-18 assessment data comparing students who attend Dallas ISD pre-K with eligible students who do not attend Dallas ISD pre-K.

Little also told trustees that enrollment in Dallas ISD pre-K continues to grow, especially for 3-year-olds. About 12,700 students are currently enrolled in Dallas ISD pre-K.

“We are now starting to see the payoff from investing in pre-K,” Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said. “I am very encouraged by what we have heard today, and where we are going in the future.”
