CD 2504E Information and Instructions


Resource and Referral Program Service Data Report

The purpose of this Web page is to provide you with information and instructions for submitting the quarterly Resource and Referral Program Service Data Report, CD 2504E, online.

Pursuant to Education Code sections 8210-8214 and the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, sections 18240-18248, Resource and Referral programs are required to provide information on the availability of child care services in local communities and to collect statistical data concerning inquiries regarding child care and development services.

The Early Education and Support Division (EESD) converted the Resource and Referral Program Service Data Report to an online report in an effort to provide increased access for contractors to submit data and to improve program compliance with reporting requirements.

As of May 1, 2007, the EESD requires all Resource and Referral contractors to submit quarterly reports online using the on-line format. The CD 2504E is available on the California Department of Education Web page.

Resource and Referral contractors must contact Shoshannah Fuentes at 916-319-0625 to obtain the logon password. Requests for a password submitted via e-mail will not be accepted. Contractors should follow the prompts for data entry for Quarter, Contract Number, and Password.

The Resource and Referral Program Service Data Report Main Menu lists three options:

  1. Current Period Data - Open to begin data entry for the quarter selected.
  2. All Quarters Report - Open to view all quarters and saved data.
  3. Change Password - Select this to change password.
Contractors have the option to perform data entry, view and print quarterly reports, and transfer the information to Word or Excel formats.

If you have any questions concerning this data submission process, please contact Shoshannah Fuentes, Quality Improvement Office, at 916-319-0625, or by e-mail at sfuentes@cde.ca.gov.
