Cradle to Career Success Indicators

Increase community vitality by increasing educational access and success in the North State through local solutions within a regional support framework
(North State Together, Bylaws, p. 1)

Developing a shared measurement system is essential to collective impact.  Collecting data and measuring results consistently on a short list of indicators at the community level and across all participating organizations ensures that efforts remain aligned.   Shared measurement in the context of collective impact is “use of a common set of measures to monitor performance, track progress towards outcomes and learn what is and is not working in the group’s collective approach” (John Kania, FSG).

Building off the research provided by StriveTogether and informed by our local county networks, North State Together identified key “cradle to career” benchmarks that frame the efforts in each county and provide guideposts for our region as a whole.  The regional indicators will be shared across the region and data about each will be provided to each county.

These six core outcome areas are informed by research as reliable predictors for a child’s educational success:

  • Kindergarten Readiness
  • Early Grade Reading
  • Middle Grade Math
  • High School Graduation and College Readiness
  • Post-Secondary Enrollment
  • Post-Secondary Completion

In addition, each county will set local indicators within the regional support framework that align with the vision of each county’s collective impact network.

Closing schools and transitioning to online learning is critical to stymying the spread of COVID-19, but relying on remote learning and online classes also exposes our region’s deep digital divide.
