This registration is specifically for the Twin Cities Cohort of this series. The Twin Cities Cohort is a condensed 2-day version of the full 3-day series. In partnership, the MN Dept. of Education, MN Initiative Foundations, and MESPA is offering SEVEN REGIONAL LOCATIONS for this workshop. To view all available cohorts, click here.

Focused, high-quality PreK-3 systems provide us with the greatest potential for achieving World's Best Workforce (WBWF) goals. PreK-3 systems with a broader scope, including collaborations with other organizations and providers, enable communities to focus their efforts on maximizing child outcomes.

These workshops are about learning and doing. District/community teams will spend time learning about evidence-based school improvement strategies within a PreK-3 system, followed by dedicated time spent on ensuring the most impactful school improvement strategies are effective in your PreK-3 system.

Day 1, Mar 14 - Elements of High-Performing PreK-3 Systems: Community Partnerships, Transitions, and Data-Driven Improvement

Day 2, Apr 25 - Teaching and Instructional Quality in your PreK-3 System: Aligning Curriculum, Assessments and Instruction, and Ensuring High-Quality Learning Environments for ALL Students

Alignment and coherence are a focus throughout the workshops where teams practice aligning on paper (e.g. practices, procedures, policies, etc.) followed by ensuring alignment in practice, which is coherence.

Who Should Participate?

Districts and charter schools should register in teams. Since the workshops are focused on action, team members should include those who are in a position to contribute to the design, implementation, and evaluation of your PreK-3 system. Suggested teams minimally consist of: early childhood administrator, elementary school principal, Head Start Director and community early childhood program leader. Day 2 teams should add a teaching and learning administrator or specialist. Team members may be different for each session. Team leaders should decide who is best suited to participate in each session. You can customize your team's attendance within the registration.

How to register

Teams should register together when possible so we can plan for seating, etc. based by teams. Click the registration button to customize your team's attendance by day. A small fee of $25 per team member, per day, will be assessed for food and materials. You can customize your team's attendance within the registration.
