Executing a new initiative often calls for infrastructure changes. These changes fall into three general areas (data systems, staff resources, and administrative resources) ensuring adequate preparations are made to support the new initiative. These three infrastructure areas are defined in the sub tabs under the Infrastructure Changes tab. Completing the Readiness Assessment captures infrastructure capacity and identifies financial, administrative, and staff resource needs. Regardless of the improvement need focus (e.g. preschool inclusion, early literacy), infrastructure capacity must be assessed to determine if it is feasible for the district to provide the new initiative's requirements (e.g. space, materials, equipment, data system adequacy, qualified staff, staff supports [training, coaching],etc.).
