The Chicago School Readiness Project is a longitudinal evaluation of a preschool program designed to improve children’s school readiness by decreasing their challenging and disruptive behaviors through a set of classroom-based interventions that include teacher training in classroom behavior management and mental health consultation. The program was implemented in Chicago Head Start centers and the study included 18 sites, randomized to condition, and approximately 600 children and 90 teachers. Data were collected using multiple measures and reporters at baseline (fall of the Head Start year), again in spring of that year, and when children were in Kindergarten, 3rd and 5th grades.
