District Innovation and Leadership in Early Learning (DIAL EE) is fiscally sponsored by Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation, an organization that partners with state and local education leaders and entities to build a strong and valued public education system that serves every student. DIAL EE fosters collaboration, enhances the capacity of school district leaders to align and create effective PK – 12 public education systems, and informs policy for early childhood education.

This grant supports the work of DIAL EE to: 1) break down isolation to generate and share insight and innovation by supporting an active learning network among district early education leaders; 2) develop leaders to strengthen public education systems; and 3) inform local and state policies and practices with a particular focus on universal preschool implementation.
