The purpose of the current study was to gather information to understand local variations in implementation of recruitment, application, assignment, and waitlist procedures. Questions addressed in the current report include:

  • What are the methods of recruitment used by local sites?
  • What are the application processes for families?
  • How are assignment decisions for the program made?
  • What are the waitlist procedures and outcomes?

Results were examined to determine the extent to which local Georgia's Pre-K Programs used common or different procedures, particular processes that were considered useful, barriers to families accessing the program with the current processes, and recommendations for improvement.
