Improving Young Children's Success: California's Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge. Fact Sheet
Children Now
California recently received a highly competitive Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) federal grant to improve the quality of early learning programs and close the achievement gap for vulnerable young children. Over the next three years, California, led by local efforts in 16 counties in collaboration with the California Department of Education, will work together to ensure positive outcomes for the state's infants, toddlers and preschoolers. The end goal of California's RTT-ELC effort is that young children, particularly those who are low-income, English learners, or children with disabilities or developmental delays have access to high quality early learning programs so that they thrive in their early learning settings and succeed in kindergarten and beyond. This fact sheet covers California's unique approach towards implementing its federal RTT-ELC grant, which builds on local and statewide successes.
