A community-based data tool to measure child development

EDI Project Overview

How it Works for Schools

Our hope for this work is that the accessible, actionable information generated by the EDI will better highlight the specific needs of children in a particular Illinois community, and then galvanize all the child-serving entities in that community to work together to address those needs.

How EDI data leads to change
Educators and school representatives

国产偷拍视频Results help identify the strengths and challenges of the children in their schools, leading to targeted interventions for those children. EDI data are used to predict academic outcomes up to fourth grade.

Parents and community leaders

The data instigate community conversations that inform advocacy action planning. EDI data also encourage equitable allocation of resources to address the needs of children and families.

Elected officials and policymakers

EDI data help government plan equitable investments, inform policy, and evaluate program success over time. Maps built from the data can help focus investments and identify specific community needs.
