Legislated Eligibility Criteria
The number of children who can be served in the Colorado Preschool Program is capped at a level set by the State Legislature. It is the responsibility of the local district advisory council to establish a clear policy for the determination of child eligibility.
Because CPP is capped, it is important to have a well-planned process to ensure that the program serves children with the highest need.
|Section 22-28-106 of the Colorado Revised Statutes defines the
eligibility criteria for children who may be served in CPP. These guidelines include:
If a child has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) and qualifies
for state Per Pupil Revenue (PPR) funding from special education,
that child cannot be funded under CPP as well.
