The Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Report Cards are distributed to service providers and local planning tables that work towards raising the profile children and youth in our community. The goal is that the Report Cards will support the development of local priorities and a local plan of action to track improvement over time. The Report Cards build awareness of the needs of children in Wellington, Dufferin, and Guelph. They can also serve as a planning tool to reveal gaps in services, areas that require action and/or change, and facilitate opportunities to respond to these needs.
In order to support individual agencies and local planning tables with the use of the Report Card data in planning and community action, the Report Card Coalition has developed two resources. These resources use the Results-Based Accountability (RBA) framework and outline the necessary steps to achieve data-drive planning using the Report Card. RBA is a planning framework developed by Mark Friedman. It is endorsed by many local service provider agencies and planning groups in Wellington, Dufferin, and Guelph.
If you are a service provider agency, working on program planning, strategic planning, or developing a performance measurement system, please access the Performance Accountability worksheet. Performance Accountability is one component of the RBA framework that addresses the well-being of client populations
