Texas school districts and charter schools will use the CLI Engage XML File Download Tool to export pre-K data to upload into TEA’s Early Childhood Data System (ECDS). Texas districts are required to submit beginning-of-year and end-of-year child progress monitoring data. Please note that this ECDS process is different from the kindergarten data process.
