Statement from Kris Perry, Executive Director,
First 5 California
Regarding First 5 California Project Legacy
Due to declining revenues, First 5 California can no longer fund programs at their current levels. We anticipated this situation and are prepared to address it in a fair and equitable manner.
Our aim is to fulfill the objectives of our strategic plan, be responsible stewards of tax dollars and help ensure all children enter school ready to achieve their greatest potential. To accomplish this, we created First 5 California Project Legacy to serve as a “Roadmap to the Future” by establishing two to three Signature Programs and innovative Pilot Projects for children 0 to 5 and their families.
1. Identify/develop “signature programs” through a balanced consideration between the existing partners with exemplary track records and new partners with strong potential to deliver groundbreaking services;
2. Collect timely feedback from service providers to enhance performance tracking;
3. Invite input from service providers on additional evidences that should have been gathered to represent their outcome-based contributions.
