Introducing ‘The COMET 4 Children Blog’

You are here

Since 2008, COMET has been working to support the success of children. 

The COMET system results from a partnership between two leading experts in their fields - A. Dirk Hightower, PhD from the Children's Institute, a child-focused agency renowned for expertise in early childhood and social-emotional behavior, and Serge Lossa, PhD from SophiTEC, a software development firm specializing in web-based, database applications.

Bringing together these two areas of expertise is what makes our product unique, and we’re ready to take the next step. Today we’re introducing a blog feature to the COMET website. We plan to share news on COMET, but only a little bit; our primary goal is to share resources and information our customers can use in their work.  What are some examples?

  • Summaries and evaluation studies performed by Children’s Institute with recommendations for program improvements and best practices.
  • Tips for working with schools and how to utilize school data to its fullest.
  • Spotlights on our customers and how they use data to improve outcomes, and more.

The COMET team is committed to providing more than a data system; we are always looking for ways to fulfill our own mission of supporting the success of children. Over the next couple months we plan to launch this blog, increase our social media presence and begin offering webinars, all with a focus around sharing tips and best practices for working with children and youth. That said, we still think data is key to understanding the strengths and needs of kids and lights the path to improved outcomes.

Stay tuned as we continue to work on new ways of supporting those people who work with kids. And reach out to us with your ideas and needs.  Whether it’s providing an improved data solution or guidance on program evaluation, our team is here to help.
