As part of our transition to become the Department of Early Childhood, the Office of Early Care and Education Citizen’s Advisory Committee (OECE CAC) has evolved to become the new Early Childhood Community Oversight and Advisory Committee (EC COAC).
In collaboration with the First 5 Commission, the EC COAC provides input and recommendations to the Department regarding overall strategies, policies, and procedures. They will also provide analysis, guide engagement processes, and make recommendations to the Department, the Mayor, and the Board of Supervisors regarding use of funds for the Early Care and Education for All Initiative (aka Baby Prop C).
