Key report headlines:
- Supply and demand for ECEAP services exists statewide, generally matching overall population density
- A gap exists between supply and demand in districts across the state, and these gaps are disproportionately larger for some school districts/regions
- The number of classrooms needed to close the gap varies greatly by expansion scenario chosen
This report also helps explain the Department of Early Learning’s methodology for determining expansion, as laid out in DEL’s March ECEAP and Head Start Saturation Study.
