PK-3 Leadership Program
Curriculum & Instruction
Assessment & Evaluation
Make a difference in PreK-3rd grade to improve outcomes through high school.
Contemporary research in early childhood development show widespread agreement that investments in quality early childhood education programs produce lifelong benefits for children. Proper alignment of curriculum, instruction and assessment during PreK-3rd grade is linked to improved outcomes for children through grade 12. And, quality early learning experiences help close opportunity and achievement gaps.
But which investments are most valuable? How do I support adult learning in a systemic way? How do I communicate the value of new programs in my community? How do I engage families in meaningful ways?
The Connecticut PK-3 Leadership Program has been specifically created to help school principals, central office and other administrators, lead teachers, community directors, and superintendents bring new skills and leadership to their school districts. You will:
• Plan systemically with a growth mindset, including
all stakeholders, to improve coherence and quality
of early learning based on a comprehensive
PreK-3rd grade approach.
• Observe classroom instruction to identify quality
indicators as well as practices that interfere with
• Lead toward reduced achievement gaps and
socially just classrooms.
• Clearly, credibly communicate strategies and
benefits to diverse stakeholders.
Practical information designed for immediate application in your classroom, your school and your community.
