Statewide Strategic Plan
Based on outcomes of the Needs Assessment, Nebraska’s PDG partners will develop a strategic plan addressing changes in policy and practice to improve the accountability, accessibility and coordination of quality services. This plan will address ways state agencies can share data more effectively, align pre-kindergarten programs with the K-12 system, and build relationships with private philanthropy.
Program Performance Evaluation
The focus of the Program Performance Evaluation is to use measures to evaluate effectiveness of the implementation process and progress toward outcomes for all grant activities. The Evaluation uses a continuous communication feedback process to gauge key successes and challenges, to identify unexpected consequences and to assess how the activities are individually and collectively contributing to the goal of aligning Early Childhood Education Systems.
