Focused Monitoring

This is another integrated component of Connecticut’s Birth to Three Accountability and Monitoring system.  In 2005 with the help of NCSEAM, stakeholders developed this based on the definition below.

A process that purposefully selects priority areas to examine for compliance/results while not specifically examining other areas for compliance to maximize resources, emphasize important variables, and increase the probability of improved results. – NCSEAM Advisory Board.

Stakeholders identified a new priority area for Birth to Three in 2009.

“Families are more confident and gain new skills which, help their children develop and learn.”

On December 8, 2014, stakeholders reviewed the 2014 Family Survey data rankings and three programs have been selected for visits and sent a selection grid.  For more information about the rankings contact Alice.Ridgway@CT.gov.  To learn more about the family survey data here is a scrubbable 10 minute video.

The three programs below were selected and visited based on the 2013 Family Survey data rankings and the links are the reports from those visits.
