Santa Clara County Office of Education Strong Start Pay for Success Feasibility Study

SRI partnered with the Santa Clara County Office of Education on its Preschool Development Grants–Preschool Pay for Success Feasibility Pilot grant to study using a Pay for Success (PFS) model to initiate and/or expand a high-quality preschool program intended to improve learning outcomes for the students in Sunnyvale School District. SRI was an evaluation consultant on evaluation design, data collection, and analysis. This encompassed considerations related to the preschool intervention, assisting with the identification and recommendations of outcome metrics, identifying and assessing the availability and quality of necessary data, creating data-sharing agreements and making data access recommendations, analyzing available data, developing a preliminary evaluation design, and assisting with the final feasibility study report. Through this project, the Santa Clara County Office of Education had the opportunity to develop a high-quality preschool model that aligns with its goals of expanding access, enhancing quality, and focusing on professional development and early childhood education workforce development. The final report is available on request.
