The Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning PANDA System
Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning operates
and administers Georgia’s Pre-K Program. As part of a strategic plan to
facilitate automation and information-based decision making, DECAL has created
the PANDA system. PANDA will enable Pre-K Providers to enter and review data
regarding their program at their convenience.
Additionally, DECAL staff will have greater access to up-to-date data utilizing
this system. Access to this system is controlled by password and encryption technology.
Only authorized users should proceed from this point.
Click the blue button at the bottom of the screen to download the PANDA Handbook,
Frequently Asked Questions and other PANDA documentation.
Support for Panda is available from 8 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday. All emails to
PANDA Support will be answered during business hours.
