About the State Early Childhood Policy Technical Assistance Network(SECPTAN
)
State decision-makers face awesome challenges in developing public policies. Theymust balance competing demands across broad issue areas, with finite resources.They must respond to diverse political pressures while seeking solutions thatultimately best reflect societal values. They must be good stewards of publicresources, requiring accountability based upon efficiency and effectiveness.State decision-makers must do all this under time and resource constraints that oftenmake securing credible information to inform their decision-making problematic.Particularly for early childhood issues, there often are not recognized and easilyavailable sources for the most current evidence in the field.The State Early Childhood Policy Technical Assistance Network (SECPTAN) wascreated to assist these state decision-makers in the important area of accessing thebest available information and evidence about effective policies and practices onearly childhood issues.The Child and Family Policy Center administers SECPTAN, which is funded throughthe joint efforts of the Ford Foundation, the Kauffman Foundation, and the PackardFoundation. SECPTAN currently operates in the seventeen states that are part of theSchool Readiness Indicators Initiative, a companion grant administered by RhodeIsland Kids Count.One aspect of SECPTAN’s work is to make current information about early childhoodpolicy initiatives readily available to state policy makers. This publication is part of that work. SECPTAN would like to thank the following individuals for reviewing andproviding comments on this publication: Nilofer Ahsan, Joan Lombardi, Anne Mitchell,James Perrin, Marion Pines, Ed Schor. and Karen VanLanderghem.For more information on SECPTAN, please contact: Charles Bruner, NetworkDirector, or Sheri Floyd, Network Manager, State Early Childhood Policy Technical Assistance Network, 1021 Fleming Building, 218–6
