Among other things, third grade reading proficiency is widely considered one of the most important predictors of a student’s likelihood to graduate high school and find success in their career.
Similarly, eighth grade math proficiency serves as a strong predictor of high school success and college entrance. These two measurements are fundamental indicators in our data dashboards, reflecting the vital stages of a student's academic journey.

In this episode, we delve into BOF's Continuous Improvement Cohort, featuring representatives from three local organizations: April Gunther from KAFASI, Jasmine Alvarez from the LGBT Center of Southeast Wisconsin, and Jennifer Pain from Women and Children’s Horizon. These organizations received roughly 24 hours of training and coaching on the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Results Count framework, exploring crucial questions about their services. In the cohort we explored the answers to hard questions like, who is benefiting the least from your services? And from there identifying the reasons, deeply understanding them, and then developing solutions.
