Data Camp for Head Start Professionals

A unique two-day professional development opportunity for program directors and data managers, focusing on the many changes to Head Start/Early Head Start with regards to data and continuous quality improvement. Participants leave with a clear idea of what it means to actually apply these concepts, as well as a working draft of specific next steps and projects to take back to their agency.

Data Capacity Assessment

Completed in two months, it combines leadership team interviews, program staff surveys, and ChildPlus data exploration memos to provide valuable insights for program directors seeking to move forward in the area of data-driven continuous quality improvement.

This is a great place to start really learning how to do strong valid data analysis related to program goals and is well worth the money. Acorn helped us clean up our data as well as analyze and use it.

ACORN has been such an effective data partner in assisting our program with telling our story through data. Our staff have been able to understand and appreciate the continuous quality improvement process in evaluating their content area data. ACORN has been instrumental in guiding and assisting us in this process. The ACORN team is very knowledgeable of Head Start Standards and the technical assistance have proven invaluable.

I have been contracting with Acorn Evaluation for 2 full years and we just started our 3 year with them. They are truly a partner with my agency and we work hand in hand together to ensure we are meeting the HS regulations as it pertains to Data. They are always available to us for any project we ask of them. They are always friendly and professional. I 100% recommend them to any Head Start agency.
