The Center for District Innovation and Leadership in Early Education (DIAL EE) supports school districts to align early education and K-12 systems to ultimately realize the best outcomes for all children. DIAL EE focuses on creating the conditions to ensure high quality education for all children, from early childhood through high school graduation. 

DIAL EE is currently partnered with a diverse set of California school districts to explore effective practices and policy in governance and leadership, budgeting, workforce development and continuous improvement for Preschool to 3rd grade. Embedded in this work is a focus on equity–for children, families, and the workforce. DIAL EE is informed by a group of early education leaders to ground its work in the realities, interests, and priorities of those responsible for early education within their districts.
