ECDataWorks— Advancing Early Childhood Policy and Programs through Strategic Use of Integrated Data
On September 1, 2016 CPRE formally launched ECDataWorks — an innovative initiative designed to provide selected states with technical, financial and infrastructure support to conceptualize and develop new tools and strategies to advance their existing early childhood integrated data systems (ECIDS).
This three year project is led by Senior Researcher Phillip Sirinides (Principal Investigator). The ECDataWorks team includes: Valerie Holt (Project Director), Missy Coffey (State Liaison), Chris Strausz-Clark (Analytics & Design Liaison), and Ruth Lett (Systems Analyst), Kate Grannemann (Research Assistant), Yolanda Green (Business Manager) and Bridget Goldhahn (Communications Coordinator)
ECDataWorks is funded by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation and will help bridge the gap between data collection and strategic data use.
