Pathway to Children Ready for School and Succeeding at Third Grade

This report presents the Pathway to Third Grade School Success framework, which aims to guide choices made by community coalitions, service providers, researchers, funders, and policymakers to achieve desired outcomes for children and their families. The Pathway framework assembles a wealth of findings from research, practice, theory, and policy about what it takes to improve the lives of children and families, particularly those living in tough neighborhoods. Its emphasis is on acting strategically across disciplines, systems, and jurisdictions to increase the number of children who are ready for school and succeeding at third grade.
