Metadata Summary: Kindergarten Readiness

Dataset Type: Statistical data

Name of Data Source: Kindergarten Readiness

Datasource Abbreviation (dataset): SDHC_K_READINESS

Description of Datasource: The Florida Department of Education/State Board of Education is required by law (Section 1002.69(5), Florida Statutes (F.S.)) to calculate a kindergarten readiness rate every year for each private or public school VPK Provider. The VPK Provider Kindergarten Readiness Rate measures how well a VPK provider prepares four-year-olds to be ready for kindergarten based upon the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards for Four-Year Olds (2011). The VPK Standards describe what four-year-old children should know and be able to do by the end of their prekindergarten year. For the 2012-13 kindergarten screening, the FLKRS included a subset of the Early Childhood Observation System (ECHOS™) and, two measures from the Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR), Letter Naming and Phonemic Awareness that provide a probability of reading success score.
