Roadmap of Need, 2018
Public School Forum of North Carolina
The Roadmap of Need is a whole child needs assessment for North Carolina youth, produced annually by the Public School Forum of North Carolina's Center for Afterschool Programs (NC CAP). The Roadmap includes 20 indicators of wellness across four domains: health, youth behavior and safety, education, and economic development. These four domains capture the interconnected social, emotional, and academic elements that are necessary for a child to succeed, both inside and outside of the classroom. Taking the approach of a whole child needs assessment is critical to understanding what is necessary for each child to have in order to thrive in school and in life. The publication's examination of 20 indicators represent data that demonstrate various needs across North Carolina, with each indicator being used to identify where young people are most at risk of not succeeding. In addition to county-specific data on each indicator, the Roadmap provides rankings for each indicator and domain, as well as an overall ranking of all 100 counties that takes into account the data on all 20 indicators.
