This report describes the state of school readiness and related findings for kindergarten students across Santa Clara County who started school in Fall 2018. This is the first countywide assessment conducted in the county since 2008.
The report is based on data collected about children and families at 42 schools in the county. Teachers at these schools rated their students’ proficiency levels on 20 kindergarten readiness skills on a scale from 1 (Not Yet demonstrating the skill) to 4 (Fully Proficient in the skill). These readiness skills are sorted into three Building Blocks: Self-Regulation, Social Expression, and Kindergarten Academics. A fourth area includes two items related to fine and gross motor skills, which serve as a foundation for these Building Blocks.
In addition to the teacher ratings, the study involved a survey of parents/caregivers pertaining to their child’s demographics, family background, and child care experiences. Please note that the information presented in this report describes only those students and families who participated in the assessment.
