Supplementary notes

There are no pre-kindergarten programs in the following states for year 2017-2018: Idaho, Indiana, Montana, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.

* Vermont could not break out the state, local, and federal spending (other than PDG) from the total amount reported.

** Wisconsin 4K could not break out the state and local spending from the total amount reported. Therefore, the portions of total spending attributable to state and local sources were estimated based on information from 2016-2017.

*** 1,510 5-year-olds and children with instructional IEPs were served in Iowas’ SWVPP program but were funded by sources not reported by the state. Similar to prior years, these children were removed from the per-child spending calculations.
