Learn about the SOAR WaKIDS Demonstration Project, and how it is being implemented at Cedar Valley Elementary (CVE) in Kent School District and Olympic View Elementary (OVE) in Federal Way School District. Participants will hear how CVE and OVE used the WaKIDS Assessment results for their incoming 2012 kindergarten class to determine which developmental domains showed the highest preparation gaps. The data helped create and implement intervention strategies that focus on young children, their parents, caregiver and early learning providers residing in the school’s catchment area. The strategies are designed to bring information and resources on school readiness, especially around the developmental areas that showed the highest preparation gap, and to build a relationship between the caregivers and the elementary school’s kindergarten teachers and staff.
