The New Mexico Early Childhood Integrated Data System (ECIDS): An Overview of the Project

By

August 15th, 2019

The New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) had a grand vision: Give every child in New Mexico an equal opportunity for success by building an integrated data system that would enable policy makers to make informed decisions about early childhood programs and policies.

In partnership with eScholar, led by NMPED, and funded by a Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) grant, just such an integrated data system became possible. In 2017, NMPED implemented the Early Childhood Integrated Data System (ECIDS), created in genuine collaboration among NMPED; Child, Youth, and Families Department (CYFD); and the New Mexico Department of Health (DOH).

By partnering with eScholar, the leading provider of longitudinal data warehouses to education, NMPED created an integrated data system that allows data to flow into a single repository. The ECIDS project also provided a unique identifier for every child in the system, which while protecting each child’s data, enables accurate data analysis. With ECIDS, New Mexico now has a system that promotes accountability, tracks early learner outcomes, and analyzes efficacy of early learning programs.
