Abstract:

This report, the first in this series of analyses of kindergarten readiness in the demonstration communities, describes the school readiness and family circumstances of a representative sample of 150 entering kindergarten children residing in the East Yakima community in the fall of 2007. A companion report presents results from White Center.

The analyses are based on three main data sources: (1) an in-home interview conducted with the parent or guardian of each child selected for the study, as well as home observation ratings, conducted by an MPR interviewer; (2) an in-school direct child assessment and child ratings conducted by an MPR interviewer; and (3) a teacher-completed report on each child's skills and behavior.
