4 Kentucky’s Strategy Response to creating high quality preschool Increasing teacher qualifications Duration of programming (full day) Comprehensive Services Identifying areas of high need High priority zip codes in Jefferson County Northern Kentucky (suburban) Eastern Kentucky Promise Zones Developing Collaborative Models Build on existing infrastructure Inclusion of Pre-K, Head Start and Community Based Child Care Sustainable models through collaborative partnerships

5 The Competition – What we learned “The applicant provides ample evidence of a strong Statewide commitment to the coordination of preschool programs and services” “The applicant clearly describes their plan to assess the outcome of participating children across the 5 Essential Domains of School Readiness and thoroughly details how this is aligned with their Statewide early learning standards.” “The applicant describes a highly functioning ECAC who, in concert with the GOEC works to steer and coordinate the States early childhood programming efforts.” The State plan had many strengths

6 Areas for potential growth The Competition – What we learned Inclusion Of children above 160% of poverty Of children in special needs populations Strength of monitoring Frequency of P2R reviews Follow up of monitoring system deficiencies System of monitoring subgrantees on progress toward goals Preschool in TQRIS Concerns that preschool has not been included in the TQRIS Monitoring system does not leverage TQRIS data All other winning ELC States were from round 1 of the competition (except NJ – round 3) Birth through 3 rd grade alignment No comprehensive services system Standards aligned but little else No aligned monitoring Quality of Data Kentucky used 3 and 4 year old numbers Need to find source for 4 year old only Professional Development Educational attainment of Pre-K staff Grandfathering of lead teachers – No IECE Assistant teachers with no CDA

7 Next Steps – What can we do? Lessons learned through ELC award – Keep moving forward with the plan Need better sources for data (4 year olds) Begin to examine systems mentioned in comments (i.e. monitoring and educational attainment) Increase inclusion of children up to 200% of FPL School-based programs included in the TQRIS Increase Statewide recruitment of participating partners
