School Readiness Indicators

School Readiness Progress Indicators

  • More children from low-income families ready for school and developmentally on track
  • Fewer children from low-income families entering kindergarten with undetected, undiagnosed and untreated conditions and developmental delays that can impede learning

Early Grade Reading Proficiency

  • More children from low-income families reading at or above grade-level at the end of first, second and third grade

An indicator helps quantify whether a target, or result, has been achieved. The Campaign emphasizes focusing on leading indicators – factors that tend to indicate changes early in a pattern or trend and therefore can be used to predict a general shift. All indicator data also should be disaggregated by race, age, grade level (for children in school), income, sex, dual language and neighborhood/zip code, when possible.
