At the February meeting, the Board will hear a presentation on the Early Development Index (EDI) and have a chance to see how the data is being used to make an impact for children and families in Orange County. We’ll share ways that First 5 OC and our partners are working to present the data more equitably, and how we are leveraging the EDI data with our systems work, partnerships, and Engaged Neighborhoods. A gallery walk of posters illustrating the EDI in action will be available for viewing in person and online.

There is an agenda item on home visiting services, including consideration to release of a Request for Information for Community-Based Home Visiting.
