California’s new Master Plan for Early Learning and Care outlines an aspirational path to universal preschool for all children. What role will school districts play in this effort? For the past decade, districts have been tasked with providing a developmentally appropriate, high-quality Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program to a small cohort of young children. Are districts equipped and ready to expand TK to all 4-year-old children? How is this part of a districts’ overall early education strategy?
Join the Early Childhood Institute on Wednesday, May 5, at 3pm for a compelling conversation with Dr. Carla Bryant, Executive Director of the Center for District Innovation and Leadership in Early Education, to discuss how districts are responding to the call for universal access to high-quality early learning experiences for all children in our state.
