Superintendents' Early Childhood Plan evaluation: 2020-2021


The Superintendents’ Early Childhood Plan entered its sixth year of implementation and evaluation across six school districts in the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties in the fall of 2020. During this year, the evaluation continued to assess school-level change, program quality, family processes, and child learning and development with a focus on program quality and child development and learning. However, this year was unlike any other in the history of Omaha metropolitan schools and the Superintendents’ Plan. In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic led districts to close many school buildings through the end of the academic year and transition to distance learning strategies and suspend year-end assessments. Some schools maintained distance learning strategies through the fall of 2020 while others returned to in-person learning. Families were engaged in home visiting that was virtual, rather than in person. These changes affected schooling for children, families, and teachers, and impacted the Superintendents’ Plan implementation and evaluation. Throughout this report, details are provided regarding modifications in programming and how evaluation captured learning in the face of program adaptations. (author abstract)
