Partnering with the Early Childhood Investment Corporation to evaluate the Great Start Collaboratives and the Great Start Parent Coalitions.
ECIC selected PPA and its partner organization, iEval, to conduct an evaluation of the Great Start Collaboratives and the Great Start Parent Coalitions. These entities work to improve system conditions for children, in pursuit of healthy births, on-track development between birth and third grade, readiness to succeed in school, and third-grade reading proficiency. The PPA-iEval team designed a systems-focused, participatory evaluation that explores the meaning of success within the system, progress on early childhood outcomes, conditions that support strategic priorities and success, and system functionality.
