Increasing Pre-K Enrollment Through Collaboration

Too often, public school districts are seen as competitors for a market share of students. But district leaders across Dallas County recognized that increased participation in early education benefited the entire community, and came together to pursue a first-of-its-kind collaboration to advertise Pre-K access for low-income students across the county. Enrollment rates now surpass the state's. The county's early education leaders discuss how you can replicate this model in your community.
