Results Matter in Nebraska:
Measuring Results for Young Children and their Families

Results Matter in Nebraska is a child, program, and family outcomes measurement system
designed and implemented to improve programs and supports for all young children birth to age five (B-5) served by districts and their community partners, which may include Head Start and other community early childhood programs.

Districts and ESUs are expected to serve children within inclusive classrooms that represent a full range of abilities and disabilities and the social, linguistic, and economic diversity of families
within the community.

Results Matter is responsive to Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) Rule 11–Regulations for Early Childhood Programs, Rule 51–Regulations and Standards for Special Education Programs, and the federal mandate of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part C (birth to age three) and Part B-619 (ages three to five).

Results Matter measures child progress and program quality to accomplish these purposes:
improve experiences, learning, development, and lives of young children birth to age five and
their families; inform program practices; demonstrate program effectiveness; guide the
development of local and state policies and procedures; and, provide data to demonstrate results.

Teaching Strategies GOLD™ training is scheduled at several sites in Nebraska during the 2014 school year. View a schedule and registration forms.

Results Matter provides YouTube videos to support implementation and classroom practices in quick and concise video formats for easy viewing. View the How to Videos here.
