By definition, the PreK-3rd approach requires bringing together disparate systems across multiple sectors. Creating an aligned educational experience for children from prekindergarten through third grade involves building a collaborative infrastructure that includes school districts, local and state government agencies, and community-based organizations. New administrative structures that govern and fund PreK-3rd work often must be established (at both state and local levels) and their roles and responsibilities coordinated to support meaningful and sustainable implementation. In this webinar we will examine strategies to integrate and align federal, state, and local policies, regulations, and funding to create a coherent system of learning from prekindergarten through third grade. (Webinar times are listed for Eastern Standard Time.)
