In April 2012, the Early Success Framework was released, outlining elements of the District's shared vision for thriving children, families, and communities. This framework has guided the work of the range of players in the District's early childhood community, both individually and collectively. In order to realize the Early Success vision, in October 2013, the District applied for the Federal Race to the Top - Early Learning Challenge. See the following documents for the Executive Summary of the application as well as the full application as submitted. The table of contents for the appendices is also below. Email Rachel Joseph in the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Health and Human Services for a particular appendix.
