  14. Parents will demonstrate a healthy level of engagement in their child's school, once their child is enrolled, which will result in improved communication regarding the child's strengths and needs. Parents use the acquired skills/information to capitalize on learning opportunities through everyday experiences. *Parents optimize their child's learning opportunities by employing "born learning" strategies in their home and in other environments, i.e. the grocery store, etc. The foundation for a strong parent-teacher relationship will be established based on a higher level of mutual respect and trust, which will lead to regular parent interaction with the school well before their child is enrolled. Children experience increased quality learning opportunities, better preparing them for kindergarten entry and ultimately for life success beyond kindergarten. Goals of The Academy • Initial • Intermediate • Longer-term Parents learn about early childhood (0-6) development and begin to understand the importance of their child's environment being conducive to learning, beginning at birth. *Parents demonstrate increased knowledge via data collected from pre/post surveys Parents become acquainted with their child's school and his/her teachers and begin to view their relationship with the school as a "partnership".

  18. Expansion Efforts • A statewide partnership developed in early 2012 to explore expansion of the academies throughout the state of Kentucky • Initial 5 year funding commitment from Toyota, ten pilot schools implemented academies in the Fall of 2012 with the intent of adding additional schools per year through 2016 • To provide this resource to other communities who were eager to have it, the founding partners are developing a start-up guide and a website to access the curriculum, materials and other training resources

  19. Implementation Fidelity-A Key to Success • A foundational principle among founding partners is using data to drive decisions and continuous improvement • The bornlearning® Academy materials are revised and updated in an effort to have the most effective curriculum • This is done in response to local academy data, experiences of local partnerships implementing academies and feedback from program participants. A group of advisors made up of representatives from founding partners are convened to provide guidance on all continuous improvement activities.

  20. Stay Tuned! • Register On-Line • Memorandum of Understanding • Many details are still to be determined

  21. Program Costs • The program was designed as a low cost , high-impact strategy • Depending on local partnerships and funding streams, costs can vary considerably but usually range between $6,000 and $10,000 • Costs to implement a bornlearning® Academy include staff, data evaluation, curriculum materials, and other direct costs (i.e. food, child care, etc.)

  22. Interested? Logical Next Steps • Successful implementation of a bornlearning® Academy requires dynamic leadership and strong commitment on the part of school and community leaders. Both components are vital to the success of the program and its sustainability. • The importance of convening a preliminary meeting to gauge interest and capacity for starting a bornlearning® Academy should not be underestimated to fully understand requirements and commitment • Outcomes of such a meeting may include designating the facilitator and coordinator, identification of potential funding sources or partners, forming an implementation team

  23. Promising Results The materials are useful They plan on using what they learned at home Facilitators are knowledgeable on the subject matter They are interested in attending future workshops
