Our research-based quarterly surveys allow us to ensure we understand what families need from the Ready4K program. Every Ready4K partner can access the results of their families’ responses through the Ready4K Dashboard. We also create an End-of-Year Impact Report for every partner.

Combined with additional data in the Ready4K Dashboard, this makes it easy to meet federal and state family engagement reporting requirements, generate reports for boards and Parent Council meetings, and keep all your stakeholders on the same page.
