Collecting Information from Head Start and Early Head Start Grantees on Implementation of the School Readiness Goals Requirements: Survey Items for Program Leadership, Teachers, and Administrative Data Collection

Publication Date: April 17, 2015

Introduction

This methodological report presents recommended survey items for understanding Head Start and Early Head Start programs’ use of school readiness goals. These survey items represent the second component of the School Readiness Goals and Head Start Program Functioning project, and were informed by the data collected from the main study.  The report defines a set of key constructs and offers three sets of survey items related to the constructs:  one targeted at program directors and education managers, one targeted at teachers, and one with questions that could be added to annual program reporting requirements. The suggested survey items are designed to serve as a starting point for future data collection efforts and to build understanding of what goals are being set, how goals are being used at the local level, and factors that can support meaningful implementation of the school readiness goals requirements.
