Early Childhood Performance Profiles

In June 2015, the State Board established a unified statewide early childhood quality rating and improvement system through Bulletin 140: Louisiana Early Childhood Care and Education Network.

Each publicly-funded child care center, Head Start, and school serving children birth to five in Louisiana receives a Performance Profile that includes a rating based on rigorous classroom observations. Each network of providers within a community also receives a Performance Profile.

Performance Profiles also include information on best practices, including use of ongoing assessment and a high-quality curriculum, teacher credentials, and program investment in high levels of individual attention for children.

Performance Profiles can be accessed for every site at www.louisianaschools.com.
