State of the States: Child Data Linked to K-12 General Education Data

Linking data from Part C or Part B 619 data systems to K-12 special and general education data systems allow states to follow children’s progress longitudinally from early childhood program participation into their later school career and address questions about long-term outcomes of Part C and Part B 619 program participants.

At least some child-level data about children receiving (Part C/Part B 619) services are in the same data system or have been linked to data from general education K-12.
