Raising the flag on quality: Measuring important early childhood outcomes: Steering Committee analysis and recommendations


The charge of the Steering Committee was to develop a set of concrete recommendations that could be used to design an aspirational, actionable, and equitable performance management framework for early childhood charter schools that addresses key limitations of the current PK–8 PMF and better represents a holistic, child-centered measure of early childhood school quality. The Steering Committee’s recommendations further aim to support an accountability framework that is useful to teachers, parents, and administrators and is aligned with what schools already measure for their own quality and improvement purposes so that there are not two separate and distinct measurement systems. The vision would inform the establishment of pre-k frameworks nationally based on the decade of learning in D.C. and its measures of early childhood quality. This goal is what drove the work; this was the Steering Committee’s vision for success. (author abstract)
