States, communities, and local providers are using data to serve the needs of children and families participating in early childhood programs (e.g., Head Start, child care, preschool). Data sharing can support efficient, effective services for children. However, the benefits of data sharing and use must be balanced with the need to support privacy. To support this, PTAC has assembled the following resources about privacy and data sharing with Early Childhood programs in mind. This list is just a start and additional resources will be added as they are developed.
