Fairfax County recently reaffirmed its deep commitment to school readiness for all children in the County, regardless of economic, cultural or ethnic background, by adopting the Equitable School Readiness Strategic Plan. The six-year plan includes five core strategies for implementation by 2022:
* Partnerships with families
* High quality experiences for all children
* Well-prepared professional educators
* Using data to make decisions
* Building public awareness
As county demographics continue to shift, ensuring young children's school readiness requires increased commitment to equity, greater coordination across sectors, and data-driven policymaking linked directly to meet family needs. Fairfax Futures will continue to collaborate with its county, private sector and nonprofit partners to support the goals and implementation of the Equitable School Readiness Strategic Plan.
