Our 2014-15 Evaluation Report is now available! This report showcases the work of our funded partners, community initiatives, and the many collaborators who work throughout the year to help us achieve our mission of making sure every child in Durham enters school healthy and ready to succeed.
As the convener and facilitator of Durham’s early childhood system, we invest in and work alongside high-quality early childhood programs that have proven results. All of our funded partners provide evidence-based/evidence-informed services that are monitored and evaluated by Partnership staff to document real impact in Durham. Our own community initiatives, such as the Touchpoints Collaborative and the Transition to Kindergarten Initiative, are held to the same high standards.
In addition to staff, the Partnership’s Evaluation Committee plays a key role in strengthening the quality of data available to inform programming decisions. The committee of experts from the Durham community works to develop a common understanding of community outcomes and indicators, and to ensure that meaningful data is collected to inform the Partnership’s work towards positive outcomes for young children in Durham. Our new data webinar series is also geared towards understanding how data can be best used to inform program improvement and development.
The evaluation report provides an overview of the impact of our programs, at both the program and community level, and it can be downloaded by clicking here.
