Early Learning Summit


  • Sarah Southard


Join early learning coordinators and other district administrators from around the region to explore best practices and innovative ideas to support early learning development. This daylong summit will include sessions on a variety of early learning topic areas as well as an opportunity to meet with community members in your school district area to learn about resources and projects that support Kindergarten readiness.

Event Notes

This year, we will be joined by the Educational Research and Data Center (ERDC) and Mari Taylor from the National P-3 Center. In the morning, teams will explore the ERDC’s Early Learning Feedback Report to gain a deeper understanding of how former ECEAP students perform on the WaKIDS assessment.  We will look at the data in the state as a whole, and data coming from specific early learning sites.  With this knowledge, teams will have the opportunity to identify patterns of achievement across sub-groups of children, identify strengths, based on school and program outcomes, and have data-informed discussions with colleagues from across the region about best practices. In the afternoon, teams will have the opportunity to do some reflection and planning for their own P-3 systems with the support of the Framework for Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating P-3 Approaches (Kauerz & Coffman, 2013).  Mari Taylor will guide teams in addressing key questions for developing and implementing comprehensive P-3 approaches to align birth-5 and K-12 systems.
