The Colorado Department of Early Childhood Memo Series is designed to streamline and clarify CDEC policies and expectations of county partners and contracted entities. There are two types of memos, which communicate the time sensitivity and importance of the policy and/or expectation: operation and information. Each memo type is described below.
- 2022 Operation Memo
Provides more specific guidance to counties or other state-designated agencies, where applicable, on how to apply a statute or rule, and neither expands such obligations nor creates new obligations. Provides detailed instructions for counties or other state-designated agencies, where applicable, to operationalize new or existing state law, state rule, federal law or federal regulation. Is used to inform counties or other state-designated agencies, where applicable, how the department will measure performance compliance. This type of memo is similar to the purpose of Agency Letters. May help resolve conflicting practices or interpretations of a statute or rule. May cover administrative issues such as documentation, reporting, and database functionality. Helps ensure clear and uniform administration of department-supervised programs across counties. Operation memos are active for three years, after three years, they are archived and then re-issued if necessary.
