UPK Implementation: Variation by Setting and Auspice
New York City must make critical decisions about how to allocate UPK funding and monitor program performance. This study will inform these decisions by comparing UPK programs in three NYC community districts across settings (schools, CBOs) and auspices (DOE, ACS, CCDF, Head Start, private funding). We will examine variation in teacher characteristics, professional development, instructional approach, and program-level structural characteristics.
