The recently published report, The Key to Good Policy, Smart Decisions and Wise Investments: Vermont’s Roadmap for an Early Childhood Data Reporting System (January 2012), proposes a road map for a comprehensive, longitudinal data system to track results and drive continued improvement. The Building Bright Futures Council now takes responsibility for the next phase of Vermont’s work to design and establish this comprehensive early childhood data reporting system.
The report includes priorities for next steps, providing a framework to guide BBF’s work. The project is evolving and all stakeholders are invited to help refine and improve its approach and strategies. The end goal is meaningful data that can be used to support sound decision making so that children’s health, development and learning flourishes.
