Document Number: 9711School Readiness Integration (SRI) Models: A Descriptive and Cost Analysis Study - The Texas Early Education Model requires participating pre-k programs to collaborate and coordinate their efforts and resources with other early care and education programs in their communities. These programs receive additional resources including professional development, technical assistance, instructional materials, and computerized assessment tools. A multi-year independent evaluation shows mixed results for the program. Participation in the program seems to improve teaching practices in the short-term and impacts some children's early literacy skills. (Edvance Research, October 2007)...
