Data & Evaluation Committee

The Data and Evaluation Committee is working towards Goal 4 of the VECAP: To build an early childhood system that is integrated, well-resourced, and data-informed.

The committee is charged with prioritizing the vision for, and progress towards, data integration; creating and monitoring a data development agenda and priorities for Vermont’s Early Childhood System (prenatal through age eight); serving as the accountability mechanism to monitor progress toward the 4 goals of the VECAP; and serving as a primary advisor for research, data, and evaluation efforts. The committee executes this charge by convening data stewards, agency leaders, and content and evaluation experts to discuss the strategy, challenges, capacity and infrastructure in place, or needed, to consistently use evidence and high-quality data to inform policy and programs within Vermont’s Early Childhood System.
