At-Risk Study: Data and Charts
The test scores come from a Be Smart Kids program initiated by Kids Can, Inc. (a non-profit organization) that works with at-risk children in Head Start and Kindergarten.
The study began in January, 2004 and continued until the end of the school year, May 2004.
The scores chart the ten students, chosen by the Kindergarten teacher, who were judged to be the “most at-risk”. Note: The darker score is the pre-test, and the lighter score is the post-test.
Additionally, measured by the Kindergarten Brigance Test, the West Pines Head Start participants raised their school’s ranking from the bottom of the eleven elementary schools in Greene County to the second highest position.
