The purpose of the School Readiness Advisory Committee (SRAC) is to work collaboratively with community agencies and families to ensure that children and families are provided with information and tools to successfully enter school; that schools are prepared for children and families; and community resources are aligned to support children, families and schools. For additional information on the history and purpose of the School Readiness Advisory Committee, please click here.
During FY21, the SRAC reviewed their purpose and work and determined that the Outcome 3 Group of the GSC is leading the work of school readiness and is comprised of the required and recommended members. To prevent duplication of efforts, Outcome 3 will continue the work for School Readiness. For more information about Outcome 3, please review their Action Agenda.
