As a result of the ECTA Center's annual needs assessment of Part C coordinators and Section 619 program, general supervision was identified by Part C coordinators as their highest priority need of all early childhood topics for several years. In July 2009, Part C identified "streamlining and integrating the various general supervision activities with the Annual Performance Report (APR), including using a data system/database for monitoring" as the greatest specific need within the topic of general supervision.

In April 2010, a National Think Tank, "Streamlining and Integrating Part C General Supervision Activities: Monitoring and Program Improvement", was held to develop resources and materials (a tool kit) that to help states identify where and how monitoring and program improvement activities could be streamlined and better integrated to meet both state needs and national reporting requirements. This online interactive guide is based on the proceedings of the Think Tank, Streamlining and Integrating Part C General Supervision Activities: Monitoring and Program Improvement.
