WRMA Selected to Evaluate First 5 Sacramento Services For Young Children and Their Families Through 2013
WRMA received the top score among proposals submitted to First 5 Sacramento to provide evaluation services, 2010 to 2013. Both the Evaluation Committee and the First 5 Sacramento Commission subsequently voted unanimously to select WRMA as the evaluator of services directed at young children and their families. The evaluation will include collecting client demographic and service information through a web-based data system. A longitudinal survey of randomly selected parents will provide the information to address most of the 37 indicators identified by the Commission to assess program effectiveness. A one-on-one assessment of pre-kindergarten children will also be used to examine outcomes of School Readiness services such as early math and vocabulary skills.
