What do you foresee as the major benefits to the Minnesota team of working with ECDataWorks?

Working with ECDataWorks to determine how state administrators and policymakers can best leverage the ECLDS to inform decisions will help Minnesota to make strong data informed decisions and use the ECLDS to track how decisions are impacting outcomes of children across the state.

Minnesota became an ECDataWorks collaborator in 2016. Known as an early innovator, Minnesota’s Early Longitudinal Data System (ELDS) combines data from Minnesota’s Department of Education, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Health into one online, interactive database. 

In Minnesota, the ECDataWorks team is designing innovative solutions for data reporting and communication to be used by state administrators for strategic planning.
