The Kansas Coordinating Council on Early Childhood Developmental Services is more commonly known as the SICC – the State Interagency Coordinating Council. This council is responsible for advising and assisting the Kansas governor and legislature on matters that impact Kansas families with children, ages birth to five who have, or are at risk for, developmental delays. Our bylaws require representation from state agencies, the Kansas Board of Regents, public members (a person who may have a vested interest in early childhood services, but is not necessarily a direct provider or services), provider members, and parents. For more information on the state statute that directs Council membership, please see Kansas Statute 74-7801
The Council’s work is to discuss pertinent matters pertaining to our youngest Kansans, including legislative updates that may require our attention, new programs that our agency members may be working on, and the work of our committees and task forces.
