Maryland aims to track child and family programs

MARYLAND - The Governor's Office for Children in Maryland has introduced a new measure to ensure greater transparency and improve evaluation of programs that serve children and families across the state.

Through the new "Child Well-Being scorecards" program the office's website will now display data descriptions and performance measure for all programs funded through local management boards in each Maryland county. 

On the link for wicomico county for example the website highlights the county's goal to have children succeed in schools and shows the different programs the county has initiated to try and reach that goal, such as the "out of schooltime" initiative and "building foundations for families."
