The Early Childhood Information System (ECIS) was a secure online data system for the Office of Early Childhood (OEC). As of November 30, 2020, ECIS has been taken offline. We are transitioning to a new and improved data collection tool called Early Care and Education (ECE) Reporter that, effective January 2021, will be used to collect state-funded child enrollment data.
ECE Reporter allows OEC to collect data and information so we can best make informed program and policy decisions affecting young children and families.
The privacy of young children and their families is a top priority for OEC. Only lead staff from early care and education programs will have access to information about students in their program through the ECE Reporter. Select administrators from OEC will also have access to the data statewide. Any sharing of information or reporting with other agencies will only be through aggregate, de-identified information. This means data that is shared will not contain any personally identifiable information (PII) that is specific to one child or that will allow a child to be identified.
