Orange County operates a School Readiness program, which aims to ensure that children are physically, mentally and emotionally prepared to learn and succeed when they enter the classroom. The Children and Families Commission of Orange County funds School Readiness Coordinators, who act as liaisons with early learning centers, school districts and Head Start, to make sure that schools are prepared for the needs of children from their first day of school. The Local School Readiness program operates as a partnership between the Commission, the Orange County Department of Education and the county’s 26 school districts.
