Attention ECE Providers and Community Partners - Your Input is Needed!

A Message from SEI:
Dear Friend of Nevada’s Children,
The Nevada Early Childhood Advisory Council (NECAC) is currently developing a strategic plan to fulfill its mission: “Nevada’s children will be safe, healthy, and thriving during the first eight years of life, and the system will support children and families in achieving their full potential.” As part of this process, Social Entrepreneurs, Inc. (SEI), in association with The Nevada Head Start Collaboration and Early Childhood Systems Office, and on behalf of NECAC, is seeking information from both stakeholders and families to inform planning priorities for Nevada’s children (ages birth through 8).
To accomplish this, we are asking ECE providers and community partners to provide input to the plan by completing the Stakeholder Survey, AND by distributing the Parent/Guardian Survey to the families in your programs through the month of August. The data gathered will be used to aid in our understanding of current situations and plan for Nevada’s future.
Please complete the stakeholder survey online. At the end of this survey you will be asked to respond to some questions regarding efforts to provide surveys to families. As an acknowledgement of your time and support, we are giving away vouchers* for educational supplies! Stakeholder surveys completed online by August 26, 2013 will be eligible for the award.
Please begin by previewing the family survey online. If you are able to forward the survey electronically to families you can use the following links to distribute this to parents and guardians.
Family Survey - English
To request paper surveys in English, Spanish or both, please contact Sarah Marschall via e-mail or by phone at (775) 324-4567. Parents or guardians responding to the survey will be entered into a drawing to win a prize. (Family surveys completed online or postmarked by August 23, 2013 will be eligible for the award. Surveys can still be sent after August 23rd, but may not be eligible for incentives/drawing purposes).
*Vouchers will be provided on a first come, first served basis and awarded based on a point-system that takes into account outreach efforts. At the end of the survey collection phase your organization will be put in either the top-ranked group (6 points or more; $30 gift card) or the second ranked group (less than 6 points; $15 gift card).
Thank you for your support of this project!
