www.learningpt.org 3 PPICS Overview “PPICS” stands for Profile and Performance Information Collection System Profile PPICS asks you to submit “Grantee Profile” information—basic information about your grant and centers. Performance Information PPICS asks you to submit program data for each year your grant was in operation. “Annual Performance Reports” (or APRs) are collected every year. Profile Performance Information
www.learningpt.org 4 PPICS Overview There are two primary reasons PPICS is necessary: Reason 1 In 2001, the 21st CCLC program changed from being a federally-administered program to being a state- administered program. The federal government needed a way to continue to keep track of the program under state administration: So, as part of your 21st CCLC grant, you are required to submit program data to the Federal government. The web-based data collection instrument PPICS was established to collect 21st CCLC data.
www.learningpt.org 5 PPICS Overview Reason 2 The U.S. Department of Education needs to be able to report on Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) indicators for the 21st CCLC program.
www.learningpt.org 6 PPICS: Gaining Access 1. State staff need to complete a delegation form online (in PPICS), and submit the form to LPA. If you are a new grantee, make sure your state coordinator has completed this step. 2. Upon submission of the delegation form, LPA automatically sends an e-mail containing username and password information to the grantee contact (specified by the state). 3. The person specified as the grantee contact, upon receiving the e-mail, will then be able to log in to PPICS as a grantee user.

www.learningpt.org 10 PPICS: The Grantee Profile A profile needs to be completed for each 21st CCLC grant received by a grantee. If you receive a new grant, you must begin a new PPICS record. To complete the Grantee Profile, complete all four Grantee Profile sections: Basic Info Objectives Partners Centers (Center Info, Prior Info, Feeder Schools)

www.learningpt.org 20 PPICS: The Grantee Profile Guidelines A grayed-out, checked-off button means you have entered enough information for the system validation; it does not necessarily mean your page is truly complete. It’s up to you to enter accurate information. A single grantee will likely have more than one objective. A single grantee can have many community partners. A single grantee often has more than one center. A single grantee often has more than one feeder school. A single center ALWAYS has at least one feeder school.
www.learningpt.org 21 PPICS: The Grantee Profile Tips Ensure your contact e-mail address is correct and up to date in PPICS. Help ensure: Objectives are classified appropriately. The grantee is not identified as a partner. Centers added to the system are consistent with the definition of a 21st CCLC. Feeder school records are correct. The profile is updated to reflect program changes.

www.learningpt.org 24 PPICS: The APR Overview The APR is an annual report—it is a report of what your program did during the past year. A single APR covers the preceding year’s summer, the preceding year’s fall, and this year’s spring term. …Apr May June July Aug Sept Oct Nov Dec | Jan Feb Mar Apr May June July Aug Sept Oct Nov… 2013 2014 “APR 2014”/“Reporting Period” (exact dates based on school program calendar) APR 2014 Data Entry (exact dates set by state)
www.learningpt.org 25 PPICS: The APR Overview An APR needs to be completed for each 21st CCLC grant active during the reporting period. The APR asks for the elements that characterized program operation during the reporting period and outcomes obtained. The APR has up to three main sections: Objectives Centers (Made up of at least six sub-sections) Partners
