Campaign for Grade-Level Reading Sustainable Scale Webinar: Early Childhood Data Visualization and Use in NC – Special Focus on Home Visiting

May 21, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

NCECF, along with partners NC DHHS and Child Trends, presented on a national webinar on May 21 through the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading’s Sustainable Scale initiative.

North Carolina is leveraging cross-agency, cross-sector collaboration to improve early childhood data collection, analysis and use in order to make data-informed decisions at the state and local levels. Through the NC Pathways to Grade-Level Reading initiative, hundreds of cross-sector partners have co-created a shared set of data measures that matter for early childhood health, literacy and well-being. The Pathways work has informed the North Carolina Early Childhood Action Plan and the state’s work on the Preschool Development Grant, as well as provided data resources and strategies for action to support the work of local partners like the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading communities and Smart Start partnerships.

Mandy Ableidinger, Policy and Practice Leader, North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation; Hayley Young, MPH, Early Childhood Data Analyst, North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS); and Dale Epstein, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, Early Childhood Data Collaborative, Child Trends presented about North Carolina’s early childhood data efforts and progress to include Home Visiting as part of the state’s Early Childhood Integrated Data System.

Mandy described how the Pathways initiative and NC DHHS are joining forces to improve early childhood data collection, analysis and use in the state, including supporting an Early Childhood Data Advisory Council to guide data development in the state. Haley and Dale shared how North Carolina is aligning home visiting data to be integrated into the NC Early Childhood Data System (NC ECIDS).
