New Preschool Education Administrator Network: Year 1 of 2 @ Virtual
May 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

This network is for recently assigned preschool administrators, or administrators wishing to revisit foundational aspects of preschool administration. Participants will dive into the foundational framework of preschool administration to include both early learning and special education federal, state, funding, and quality requirements. Evidence based practices taught will align completion of ETRs and IEPs to influence student achievement. This is a multi-session, 2-year cohort.

During the 2020-21 school year, participants will:

  • identify their current location in the educational cascade, and how roles throughout the cascade differ
  • learn tenants of state and federal mandated requirements and identify how each is represented in their program/school
  • begin to establish skills to self reflect on their progress as an instructional coach and leader
  • draft an internal monitoring plan to align proper implementation of timeline driven requirements through documentation and implementation
  • draft an annual calendar of routine department requirements, responsibilities, best practices, and action

Please Note

  • This Professional Learning Opportunity is by invitation only.
  • Participants will be asked to complete pre-work to prepare for each session.
  • Registration will be closed after the first session.
  • Participants are expected to make a strong commitment to attending sessions, as content is cumulative.
