How effective is San Antonio’s full-day preschool program?

Evaluating San Antonio's Pre-K 4 SA program

Research shows that attending preschool can shrink by one-half the achievement gap between low- and high-income students. San Antonio is one of a handful of U.S. cities investing in preschool programming for underserved children. Its Pre-K 4 SA program began providing full-day preschool for 4-year-olds in 2013; by the 2016-2017 school year, more than 2,000 children were enrolled.

The City of San Antonio requested Westat’s assistance in evaluating the program’s effectiveness.
