In an effort to ease the burden on school districts and charter schools in uploading required kindergarten literacy screener data into the Early Childhood Data System (ECDS), TEA initiated a data share agreement with the Children’s Learning Institute (the organization that owns and maintains CLI Engage). As part of the agreement, CLI will be submitting kindergarten data directly to TEA for ECDS. See full process in detail below and described in our webinar at the bottom of this page.
You can complete our short CLI Engage BOY Survey for Kindergarten XML files for ECDS. The information submitted in this survey will help us refine your kindergarten XML files submitted to TEA for the Early Childhood Data System (ECDS).
Please submit only one response per District/Charter agency.
