We’re excited to announce that 100% of our targeted 51 districts have now completed the Mississippi First Title I PreK Survey. We’re already busy cleaning, consolidating, and analyzing the data. Once we get the data in a useful format, we’re going to ask the districts to confirm their responses, finish incomplete responses, or clarify responses that are contradictory to their Title I applications. When we have all of this data confirmed, we can then begin writing our report about Title I Pre-K in Mississippi.
We owe a big debt to the Mississippi Department of Education, especially Office of Federal Programs Director Debbie Murphy, Deputy State Superintendent Dr. Kim Benton, Office of School Improvement Director Dr. Laura Jones, and Conservatorship Director Bill Welch for helping us get all the responses.
