Early Childhood Tracker Support:

The mission of the Northside Achievement Zone (NAZ) is to build a culture of achievement in a geographic zone in North Minneapolis to ensure that all youth graduate from high school college-ready. This is achieved by partnering with schools, organizations, and families to significantly improve education and guarantee opportunities to support for children from pre-birth to college. NAZ is committed to maximizing the use of early intervention strategies that improve early childhood outcomes, kindergarten readiness and future educational achievement. The project was to provide research to support the Early Childhood Action Team. A student Research Assistant analyzed existing data and identified gaps between the needs of NAZ families and currently available resources. The results are being used to identify additional resources needed and to recruit new agencies and services to join NAZ Connect.
