Project improves at-risk three-and four-year-olds school readiness through implementation of a state-approved research-based curriculum; child progress monitoring to inform instruction; on-going professional development with mentoring for teachers; and participation in the Texas School Readiness Certification System. Today, the Texas School Ready! Project serves approximately 80,000 children in 5,800 classrooms in 200 cities across Texas. Our goal is for every three-and four-year-old to have access to the Texas School Ready! Project.
