Washington State Readiness To Learn: School-Linked Models for Integrated Family Services. 1998-99 Evaluation Report. Volume 2: Program Summaries.
Einspruch, Eric; Deck, Dennis; Grover, Jane; Hahn, Karen
The state of Washington implemented the Readiness to Learn program as part of the state's Family Policy Initiative. The primary goal of the program is to serve as a formal link between education and human services by authorizing grants to local school-linked, community-based consortia to develop and implement strategies that ensure children arrive at school ready to learn. This report presents summary descriptions of 34 local programs statewide. Each summary description is organized similarly and includes a brief program description, information on consortium and collaborative agreements, descriptions of services to children and families, details on the outcomes for children and families, statistics on characteristics of program participants, and examples of program successes.
