Monitoring Preschool Progress

All Our Kids Network will provide preschool teachers throughout Stephenson County with 56 iPads to monitor student progress and development, so that they can provide kindergarten teachers with an extensive portfolio of the students’ work.

Dana Keim, Public Health Foundation of Northern Illinois, stated: “This project dovetails with a funding proposal submitted to United Way of Northwest Illinois to use a collective impact model to standardize curriculum, train 80 early childhood teachers, and manage community data to ensure kids are ready for kindergarten. The funding request is to purchase 56 IPads to allow 46 classrooms and nine home visitors in Stephenson County to collect and manage child assessment, developmental and social-emotional data, and create child portfolios for kindergarten teachers.”
