Early Childhood Data System (ECDS) Submission - Prekindergarten: Update 2020-2021

The Early Childhood Data System (ECDS) collection is one of the TSDS Core Collections. This guide covers the submission of prekindergarten (PK) data. (Kindergarten data is submitted separately.) The reporting of PK program data for ECDS is mandatory for all public school districts. The reporting of private PK program data is optional.

LEAs are required to submit specific demographic, classroom link, and special program data elements for the 2020-2021 ECDS PK collection.

The ECDS PK submission is due June 24, 2021.

NOTE: The assessment vendor will provide the ECDS PK assessment data directly to LEAs in TWEDS-compliant XML format. LEAs will load the assessment data files into TSDS.
