Colorado Shines Professional Development Information System
The Colorado Lab supported the Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) Office of Early Childhood in their rebuild of the new Professional Development Information System (PDIS) for early childhood professionals. Launched in mid-June, this new workforce registry and professional development system greatly improves the experience of early childhood teachers and providers by centralizing all the information needed to become a qualified professional and to meet state child care staff licensing requirements.
The Lab continues to support the CDHS Office of Early Childhood to leverage these data to answer critical questions that will inform the rollout of the Universal Pre-K program and other major investments designed to improve the quality and capacity of the early childhood workforce. This fall, the Colorado Lab will release the updated Early Care and Education Workforce snapshot report and data dashboard.
