THRIVE Santa Barbara County to Showcase Outcomes for Children, Families

From 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21 at the Marriott Courtyard in Buellton, THRIVE Santa Barbara County will hold the first annual Results Faire to showcase the work of the five THRIVE Community Collaboratives.

The THRIVE Community Collaboratives from Guadalupe, Santa Maria, Isla Vista, Santa Barbara’s Westside and Carpinteria will share their learning about what it takes to increase outcomes for children and families in the early years.

THRIVE Santa Barbara County has a common “report card,” titled the Children’s Thriving Report Card, used to measure the progress of each community collaborative’s work from birth to third grade.

Since 2009, the THRIVE Community Collaboratives have been measuring their progress against a set of results aligned with four key result areas: (a) Children enter school ready to learn; (b) Children master grade-level standards through third grade; (c) Children are healthy and thriving; and (d) Families are engaged and provide strong support for their children’s learning and development.

At the Results Faire, guests will have the opportunity to see the results and learn about signature strategies that have contributed to the increase in each result area. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet teams from each of the five collaboratives and find out more about their work.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
