The Kindergarten Readiness System has now completed the Kindergarten data collection. At this time PreKindergarten data and Kindergarten data is being matched and undergoing the analysis. 2013 Prek Center of Excellence Designations will be awarded Spring 2013!
Pursuant to Texas Education Code (TEC) §28.006 (Reading Diagnosis) the superintendent, or a designee, of each school district and open-enrollment charter school is required to electronically report each kindergarten student’s raw score on kindergarten beginning of the year (BOY) reading instruments each year.
The kindergarten data collected under this provision are used to evaluate the effectiveness of prekindergarten programs and certain federal or government-subsidized child care and education programs under the Kindergarten Readiness System (KRS) formerly known as the School Readiness Certification System (SRCS). School districts and open-enrollment charter schools use the FERPA-compliant web-based reporting system.
