- Last fall, graduate students in faculty member Matt Hayes' psychology statistics class analyzed test scores of a sample of 4,389 elementary students and found that third graders in at-risk groups who had participated in the district's pre-kindergarten program tested significantly higher in reading than those who didn't receive any early education training.
- Results of the graduate students' work will be presented to the Rock Hill school board at a future board meeting.
