Blue Ribbon Committee Report

The New York State Board of Regents is engaged in an effort to better align the State's early care, preschool and early childhood educational policies and create a comprehensive plan to ensure that all children in New York State get a healthy start from birth, become ready for Kindergarten, stay on track to graduate from high school, and are successful in life.

The Early Childhood Blue Ribbon Committee Final Report, under the direction of the New York State Board of Regents Early Childhood Workgroup, reflects a deliberate and comprehensive process designed to give all children in our State the fairness of an even start.
