The Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) is introducing new student identification process for children registered in Early Childhood Family Education and School Readiness (ECFE/SR). The purpose of the new system is to better understand children’s experiences prior to kindergarten.
The benefits to this work include extending existing practices in K-12, Early Childhood Screening, Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education to families registered in ECFE/SR. This will lead to improved policies at the national, state and local levels for children and families. New, secured web resources are available to assist organizations submitting student data.
