Definition and Source



Number of children enrolled in preschool (PK3) and pre-kindergarten (PK4) by school type.

Data Source

Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) Annual Pre-Kindergarten Reports. 2020-21 and 2021-22 data were based on performance oversight responses shared in March, 2023. 1823 children in 2020-21 and 1604 children in 2021-22 were enrolled in pre-K, but with an unknown ward, leading to a discrepancy between the District-wide total and the number of children enrolled across ward.

Note that 2019-20 data were updated December 2021 to reflect the data in the FY20 fiscal year report. Previously data from this school year were based on performance oversight responses and did not reflect charter school capacity because OSSE said those data were not provided to them due to COVID-19 restrictions.
