Under legislation adopted in 2011, the legislature's Select Committee on Children is required to develop an annual Report Card to help the public evaluate state policies and programs affecting children. The legislation further requires applying results-based accountability (RBA) principles to the effort, so that anyone reading the Report Card can see exactly how well a program is doing in achieving its goals and where changes might be needed.

On Tuesday, September 11, 2012, the Commission on Children heard a presentation on the progress so far in creating an interactive website for the Report Card at State Representative Diana Urban of North Stonington, who co-chairs the Select Committee on Children, led the presentation, but the Commission also heard from leaders of the teams created to gather data for four key indicators: child health, safety, stability, and likelihood of future success. The teams drew their members from various government agencies and nonprofit groups involved in making things better for all children in Connecticut.
