Data Culture Toolkit

Data Culture Tile

The DaSy toolkit is a resource containing information, guidance, and templates to help Part C and Part B 619 program staff build effective data teams and support conditions for a culture of data use at the state and local levels. The toolkit is organized around key steps to building a culture of data use in your state or local team. Each step includes an overview, considerations and data team resources (e.g., videos, infographics, templates, and blogs), and tips for how to use resources included in each section. As agencies use the data culture tools contained here, they will be able to 1) increase the participation and focus of their data teams and 2) review and make improvements to data quality and the processes used to gather, monitor, analyze, and use data.

System Supports for Virtual Coaching

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states continue to provide Part C and 619 services online or via a hybrid model of remote and in-person. For programs that have moved to in-person, access is often limited to only children and staff. As a result, challenges have emerged in determining the best ways to provide practice-based coaching to support practitioners with the implementation of evidence-based practices.

Leadership: Purpose with Passion

Join a panel of state leaders who will share their roles in the development and pilot of the Part C and Part B/619 Leadership Initiative sponsored by the Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC). Strengthening the knowledge and skills of the Part C and Part B 619 coordinators leads to enhanced effectiveness and retention of these critical state system leaders.
