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.
Please see the CPP Handbook for more details.
