Early Education Visibility
The visibility data points were determined during a website review (October 13-31, 2020) or through a survey sent to the district’s early education leads in fall 2020. For two of the data points, initial data were not collected (*). For more information about the methodology, please see A Survey of ECE Visibility and Alignment in California School Districts.

Fall 2021 data will be collected via a website review of the California school districts that hold a CSPP contract. The total number of school districts that hold California State Preschool Program (CSPP) contracts fluctuates annually. Our goal for the fall 2021 data collection is that each visibility data point will be at 100%.
