FCD Policy to Action Brief Series No. 2
In a time of great fiscal constraints, policymakers and educators are focusing not only on raising student achievement, but also on making more strategic use of the available funds. One result is that school districts are implementing PreK-3rd approaches that link high-quality PreK programs with high-quality K-3 grades with promising student outcomes.
In PreK-3rd: What is the Price Tag?, the second in a new series of Policy to Action Briefs, series editor Rima Shore offers a framework for estimating the costs of doing PreK-3rd. She describes the core elements, and the steps to cost out each element based on district needs.
