Data Analysis and Parent Advisory

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Data Analysis and Local Parent Advisory Committee Cycle

Oakland Schools has developed a sample Data Analysis and Local Parent Advisory Committee Cycle to support programs in implementing a program evaluation and improvement plan that meets GSRP requirements. This is a sample cycle and programs are able to adopt a different model as long as it meets the GSRP requirements. The GSRP implementation Manual provides these bulleted lists as a quick glance of required components:

Data Analysis Team

  • Early Childhood Specialist (ECS) as leader.
  • Made up of teaching teams, supervisor, parents, and specialists/stakeholders.
  • Meets minimally 3 times each year.
  • Analyzes aggregated program and child outcome data by sub-recipient.
  • Sets goals and monitors progress toward goals.
  • Reports to the local GSRP Advisory Committee, school board, parents and the public.

Local Parent Advisory Committee

  • Annual orientation/training to instill confidence in parents as active group members and decision makers.
  • Includes representation from GSRP teaching staff.
  • One parent for every 18 enrolled children.
  • A focus on local considerations, including recruitment/enrollment, Preschool Program Quality Assessment (PQA) results and child outcome data.
  • Meets minimally twice per year.
  • Liaison to the Great Start Collaborative Parent Coalition (GSPC).
