[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] This research project was conducted to serve several purposes. The first was to evaluate the longitudinal academic achievement effects of student's participation in a local district-affiliated pre-k program compared to students who did not participate in the district-affiliated pre-k program. The second purpose was to evaluate the effects of gender for participants in the district-affiliated pre-k program and non-participants on later student academic achievement. Lastly, the project's purpose was to evaluate if there was any significant difference in academic achievement, at the end of third grade, based on a student's participation in the district-affiliated pre-k program and the student's age in months at the time of the assessment used to measure academic achievement.
