Data Systems


Early Education Enrollment reports the attendance and membership for children enrolled in ECFE and School Readiness programs across the state that meet at least six times with the same group of children and families.

Early Education Enrollment is built on the Ed-Fi system that also collects information for MARSS. Information on EE Enrollment is available on the Ed-Fi Documentation site below.
