COVID-19 and Preschool Through 3rd Grade Education
CDE's Preschool Through 3rd Grade (P-3) Office has gathered resources to help answer questions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to our early learners in Preschool Through 3rd Grade during the Stay-At-Home orders and the suspension of in-person learning. The Opening of School 2020-21 resources were prepared as a supplement to the CDE 20-21 School Year Toolkit.
About the Colorado Preschool Program
The Colorado Preschool Program (CPP) is a state-funded early childhood education program administered by the Colorado Department of Education. Each year the General Assembly provides funding for up to 29,360 children considered to be at-risk for later school failure to attend half- or full-day preschool. CPP is managed by local school districts and their preschool advisory councils. Each participating school district is given a predetermined number of half-day positions to serve eligible children. These positions are used to serve preschoolers in either half- or full-day programs in school district settings, local childcare centers, community preschools or Head Start programs.
