The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is a powerful tool to understand early childhood development in our community, and our goal is to ensure that this data is accessible to all of our community partners for data-driven advocacy efforts. Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) and Oakland Starting Smart and Strong (OSSS) have shared the 2020 EDI results with many community partners over the past few months. Here are three examples of what we’ve done so far:
Through these conversations, we’ve made headway into using the results for local advocacy. We thank Keith Welch, OUSD Data Analyst, for sharing the EDI with these groups. If you’d like for us to share the EDI with your organization, please request a presentation or email Trisha Barua (firstname.lastname@example.org).
