Kids in Common, a program of Planned Parenthood of Mar Monte, held the 14th Annual Santa Clara County Children’s Summit on March 19, 2021. The virtual event featured the release of the 2021 SCC Children’s Data Book and the presentation of the Bold Steps for Children Awards to youth and family organizations that have worked to meet the needs of the community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The Children’s Data Book continued its invaluable longitudinal view of Santa Clara County’s children’s progress towards being safe, being healthy, being successful in learning and successful in life. Unfortunately, the data this year show the county losing ground in the availability of high quality early education and substantial racial/ethnic disparities in more than half of the metrics presented. The book also includes deep dives on a number of topics including the impact of COVID-19 on the county’s children and the economics of living in Santa Clara County.
