Oregon’s Raise Up Oregon (2019 – 2023) Data Dashboard (“the Dashboard”) is a collection of 40 cross-agency indicators that are routinely gathered by these five state agencies. Each indicator relates to our state’s ambitious early learning strategic plan, Raise Up Oregon (2019 – 2023), which speaks to three system-level goals:
- Children arrive ready for kindergarten,
- Children are raised in healthy, stable, and attached families, and
- The Early Learning System is aligned, coordinated, and family centered.
Oregon’s Dashboard intentionally gathers key cross-agency indicators together in one place, providing yearly point-in-time “snapshots” of the available early childhood system data. These snapshots are collected in the Dashboard, making it possible to see how the data change over time for each indicator from year to year. In this way, the Dashboard provides a big-picture overview of how well Oregon’s early childhood system is functioning.
The Dashboard makes state-level data available to everyone working to improve Oregon’s early childhood system. It is a conversation starter meant to support cross-agency communication and to bring community partners with diverse perspectives to the table to discuss Oregon’s early childhood system.
Specifically, the Dashboard is designed to have early childhood system community partners as its main users. These partners include, but are not limited to Early Learning Council members, Oregon state agency partners, policy makers, legislators, Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) staff, and Early Learning Hub staff.
The intended goal is that these community partners will be able to easily make data-informed decisions in their everyday work by easily accessing the information in the Dashboard. Although the Dashboard is not specifically designed to be used by families with young children or members of the early care and education workforce, anyone who is interested is invited to explore the Dashboard and its contents.
