Document Number: 5887Building the Foundation for Bright Futures - Two Reports - Both of these reports stem from the Task Force on School Readiness created during and continued after Governor Paul Patton’s 2002-2003 National Governors Association chairmanship. Building the Foundation for Bright Futures: Final Report of the NGA Task Force on School Readiness explains how readiness is an issue for multiple stakeholders – states, schools, communities, families and children – and provides recommendations on what states can do to help all stakeholders do their part in ensuring school readiness. The companion report, Building the Foundation for Bright Futures: A Governor’s Guide to School Readiness, draws from the task force recommendations and offers examples of what states are doing to build ready states and support ready schools, communities, families and children.
