Collecting Information from Head Start and Early Head Start Grantees on Implementation of the School Readiness Goals Requirements

Survey Items for Program Leadership, Teachers, and Administrative Data Collection

Abstract

Starting in December 2011, new regulations required Head Start and Early Head Start grantees to set school readiness goals and to collect and analyze data tracking progress toward their goals. This report serves as a resource for future data collection efforts that aim to understand how grantees are responding to the new rules. The report includes items that can be used in surveys of program leadership, surveys of teachers, or incorporated into annual program reporting requirements. The survey items build on findings from early exploratory research presented in How Head Start Grantees Set and Use School Readiness Goals.
