Early Learning Challenge

​​The State of Delaware is one of only two states awarded phase I funding from the U.S. Department of Education under President Obama’s Race to the Top — Early Learning Challenge program.  This is a large-scale initiative aimed at dramatic improvements to the State’s education system on multiple levels.  One of the strategies involves improving emotional and behavioral wellness in early childhood through dissemination and implementation of Evidence-Based Practices, including PCIT.  The State has contracted with C-TECC to provide evaluation of these efforts.
