The Supporting and Empowering Educational and Developmental Services (SEEDS) Program is a multi-disciplinary intervention team composed of schools, community, and family representatives. The primary goal of SEEDS is to ensure children
- Are ready for Kindergarten,
- Are promoted at the end of the school year, and
- Are reading on level by third grade.
These goals are accomplished by working together with the family to support the child's developmental, educational, and social needs so he or she is able to successfully function at home, school, and in the community. The SEEDS team utilizes strength-based planning to support the child and the family by combining the strengths of the family, school system, community services, and existing family supports. The Children’s Board of Hillsborough County funds this project in partnership with the School District of Hillsborough County, and we collaborate with the Hillsborough County elementary schools across the county to provide children and families with the help they need to overcome some of life’s obstacles.
