The Standard For Success Foundation, Inc., a non-profit created by Indiana educational software company Standard For Success, announces a partnership with Clinton Central School Corporation to utilize a new early learning program assessment tool (ELPAT).

The ELPAT is a program assessment tool designed to provide input into birth to grade three educational programs. Endorsed by the AASA (School Superintendents’ Association), the ELPAT is designed to recognize early learning program best practices.

The SFS Foundation has provided a grant opportunity to schools in order to implement the ELPAT with assessment, coaching, and program planning. Participating schools who implement the program action plans will receive recognition for their early childhood programs.

“This grant opportunity is designed to work collaboratively with schools to ensure quality, research-based programming for early learners,” says Dianna Whitlock, President of the SFS Foundation. “This is in line with our foundation’s mission of supporting better teachers, better students, and a better world. We look forward to partnering with Clinton Central School Corporation to observe their outstanding early learning practices”.

Superintendent Al Remaly of Clinton Central School Corporation states, “I am excited to be working with the SFS Foundation as we assess the Clinton Central Early Learning Program. The staff and administration are ready to take the program to a higher level and we are looking forward to the information we will gain throughout this process”.

The SFS Foundation, Inc. was established in 2018 with a focus on conducting educational research and supporting best practice initiatives in schools.
