In unanimous votes, the Board approved two key actions that will help refine its focus on the future and move forward in monitoring targeted county-level outcomes for young children and their families.
First, the Board unanimously approved the Strategic Plan Refinement Process for 2019, a move that recognizes the importance of building on the foundational work of the last three years of First 5 LA’s 2015–2020 Strategic Plan.
Guided by our North Star, First 5 LA is advancing toward its goal that all children in L.A. County enter kindergarten ready to succeed in school and life by 2028. To accomplish this, First 5 LA is developing an Impact Framework — a tool to show how our program, policy and advocacy work contributes to better outcomes for all children. The Impact Framework will help us track and monitor those outcomes and ensure we remain responsive to the needs of L.A. County’s children.
