Strive Partnership; Success by 6®, INNOVATIONS, Cincinnati Public Schools, Covington Independent Schools, Newport Independent Schools
Children who are ready for kindergarten are more likely to stay on track and in school. And teens who finish high school are more likely to be employed. When we help our region’s children prepare for school, finish school and pursue higher education or training, we lay the foundation for a brighter future for us all.
This Bold Goal measure allows us to monitor progress toward the community goal that 85% of children will be prepared for kindergarten by 2020. Increasing the rate of kindergarten preparedness creates a building block for success in school and life. Children who are not prepared for the first day of kindergarten frequently require additional instructional support and often never catch up with their classmates.
