Evaluation of Get Ready Guilford Initiative

The purpose of this project is to design and implement a developmental evaluation for an expected 10-year early childhood collective impact project, the Get Ready Guilford Initiative (GRGI). Activities will include gathering information on the organizations, relationships, practices, roles, and competencies involved in the systems work. In addition, we will coordinate and aggregate the evaluative activities and results to ensure that data and findings are synthesized and packaged to support learning and continuous improvement. During the first three years, we will work closely with the funders and implementing partners as they finalize theories of change and develop detailed plans for the initiative to map components of the network, develop practice profiles, and conduct competency assessments.
