Creating coordinated early childhood systems: Lessons from Louisiana’s Ready Start communities: Executive summary


In 2019, LDOE designated seven community networks that had made considerable progress on meeting these goals as the first cohort of “Ready Start Networks” and gave them a set of additional resources and supports to further strengthen their ECE system-building and improvement efforts. Based on interviews with network leaders, this report provides insights on how these seven exemplary community networks responded to Act 3 and worked to increase quality, access, and coordination. It highlights common challenges and successful strategies, and it aims to inform other communities working to build stronger early childhood systems in Louisiana and nationwide. (author abstract)
