Description: Though Head Start has a long history of efforts focused on preparing children for school and assessing children's development, it is only since December 2011 that Head Start regulations specifically require grantees to set school readiness goals and track progress toward those goals. To gain an understanding of how programs and child and family outcomes may change in response to the specific focus on school readiness goals, it is important to begin with how grantees are interpreting and responding to the new requirements. This report serves as a resource for future national surveys or data collection efforts that aim to understand the kinds of goals grantees set, how they collect and analyze data to track progress, ways the goals are being used at the local level, and factors that can support meaningful implementation of the school readiness goals requirements.
