This webinar continued IDC's Back-to-Basics Webinar Series for new Part B and Part C state staff, staff with new indicator responsibilities, and those who want a refresher on ins-and-outs of the SPP/APR indicators and related Section 618 data collections. The webinar focused on beginning level information on Indicator C2 (Primary Settings) and B6 (Preschool Settings), including a review of the indicators’ specific criteria and data sources; steps and calculations required to collect, analyze, and report Indicators C2 and B6 data; and any differences or similarities between Indicators C2 and B6 and the other indicators.
