WE NEED EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS INPUT!
 
The Delaware Department of Education is currently developing a new software system, to be called DEEDS 3.0, for credentialing of educators who work in Early Childhood through Adult Education. We have merged two existing systems, Delaware First (Early Childhood) and DEEDS (K-12), to make it easier for educators to apply, maintain, and update their credentials. We are inviting educators who have interacted with our current systems to provide feedback to us about DEEDS 3.0 through an online survey.
 
We are asking Early Childhood Owners/Administrators to choose one employee who is currently certified as an Early Childhood Assistant Teacher or Early Childhood Teacher to complete the attached survey. In doing so they will be providing valuable feedback to inform the decision making process as we move forward. This new system is being built to better support all educators – including you – the early childhood professional.
 
The deadline for your designee to submit his/her response is Monday, December 7th. So please, select a person today and have him/her respond by the deadline. This is an important survey to help build a stronger system!
