Families & Communities Rising Evaluation

Project Description

CCFP researchers are working with Families and Communities Rising to select, implement, and evaluate a school readiness assessment at their Head Start sites across Durham and Orange Counties. CCFP will first conduct a landscape analysis to assist in the selection of a school readiness assessment tool. CCFP will then assist in training teachers on how to use the results of the selected measure to inform and enhance teaching strategies, as well as how to share the results with caregivers so that they are aware of their child’s strengths, and areas for growth both at home and at school. CCFP will then analyze end of year school readiness data for all rising kindergarteners and develop a report for FCR leadership and stakeholders.
