  • This project is designed to provide a statewide evaluation of the NC Pre-K Program. The primary research questions addressed include who is served by the NC Pre-K Program, what are the characteristics and quality of services provided, and what are the outcomes for children attending the program. Data are gathered from multiple sources including classroom observations, teacher surveys, child assessments, and monthly program reports.
  • Through the Vermont FirstSchool Partnership, FirstSchool staff at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will help educators in Vermont make substantial gains in understanding and implementing the content and process of the FirstSchool approach to transforming PreK-3rd grade.
  • This project will evaluate the efficacy of a small group social-emotional intervention, the Incredible Years Dina Treatment Program, when implemented in schools. There are few evidence-based targeted interventions that have been validated for use in schools with early elementary students with significant disruptive behavior. The present study will evaluate educational outcomes of this program and provide data that can advance knowledge of self-regulation theory and inform use of multi-tiered systems of support for this population.
