Community Outcomes Drive Systems Change

The CYSN Community Indicators and Measures Committee, responsible for measuring the work of the Network, is currently comprised of representatives from both school boards, both municipal social services, Highland Shores Children’s Aid, United Way Quinte, Community Development Council Quinte, Hastings & Prince Edward Counties Health Unit, the Hub, Quinte Children’s Treatment Centre, TMFRC, Quinte and District Rehabilitation, and Kingston Literacy and Skills.

 Community Indicators and Measures Committee highlights to date include:

√  Proposed five “red flag” indicators for review and decision by the Network

√  Developed Report Card 2013 brochure on data about “green flag”, “yellow flag” and the priority “red flag” indicators – Food Insecurity and Kindergarten Students who are Developmentally at Risk

√  Sent Report Card 2013 brochure content and layout to the Communication Team to ensure clear and consistent messaging and branding 

√  Succeeded in obtaining a United Way grant for design, printing and distribution of the Report Card 2013 brochure

√  Reviewed and supported a Network meeting survey format developed by the Data Analysis Coordinator

√  Explored various data repository models, and adopted ideas for content and format from ACT Rochester.  See http://www.actrochester.org/.

Next steps for September will include (but are not limited to):

◊  Developing a detailed Report Card 2013 report

◊  Designing and building a data repository 

◊  Reviewing a Partnership Self-Assessment Tool, selected by the Logic Model Working Group in 2010, to determine whether it is the best outcome and process evaluation tool for the Network.
