Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. Two states shared their recent efforts to collaborate with local programs and families to review outcomes data and make decisions related to program improvement. The Delaware Preschool program has conducted site visits where they reviewed and discussed child outcomes data with local districts. The state provided statewide and district level data analyzed by a number of variables for locals to review, identify "€˜red flags"€™ in data quality, and determine next steps for improvement. A recent New York Part C project focused on sharing family survey data with families in the program. Statewide and county level data were shared and families helped with interpreting and thinking about potential activities for program improvement.
