Conduct Rigorous Evaluation for Learning & Impact

Read about the outcomes we’re aiming to achieve.

To build an effective early childhood system, we need to understand what’s working — and not working — in real time, especially when it comes to the design and implementation of system changes.

As part of the Get Ready Guilford Initiative, our partners at Frank Porter Graham Institute (at UNC – Chapel Hill) are working with staff to design a developmental evaluation that will document and guide our work.

It’s also critical to answer the question “what impact is the system-building work having on children and families?” A national leader is developing an approach to determine — starting in 2022 — whether we’ve been successful.
