Decision Cycles 345+6
This set of draft recommendations, known as Decision Cycles 345+6, is the result of the careful deliberation on some critical questions. This document lays out a bold vision for the future of the profession and offers a unifying pathway to get there. Recommendations are focused on differentiating pathways, preparation, and compensation.
The decision cycle process as an iterative conversation with the field and the feedback we receive is essential as we draft our recommendations.
Revisions included in the final Decision Cycles 345+6 document were informed by a wide variety of feedback from the early childhood field including over 760 survey responses, 18 focus groups, 9 formal letters and statements, dozens of informal conversations, and targeted outreach to elevate underrepresented perspectives from communities of color and rural areas.
The Task Force has come to agreement on Decision Cycles 345+6 and is using these recommendations to inform the final set of recommendations in Decision Cycles 7+8.
We need your voice!
The Decision Cycles 7+8 draft is now open for public comment. Visit the Decision Cycles 7+8 page to learn more.
