2019 Asheville ESSA & Early Learning Meeting
Building a strong foundation for learning takes all of us working together. With its requirements to engage early learning stakeholders, the Every Student Succeeds Act provides an opportunity to engage community partners to support our children in fulfilling their potential.
It begins with aligning strategies. No matter where you sit, you create annual strategic plans to access funds.
What would be possible if we aligned these plans and our work to create a system that builds a strong foundation of learning for all children in our communities? What would be possible if districts had support to collaborate across systems to focus on family engagement, professional development, and transitions? We are committed to doing just that.
Meetings will focus on three areas that local early learning and K-12 leaders identified as priorities: family engagement, aligned professional development and transition into kindergarten. Attending teams will identify a problem of practice to address, develop an action plan, and receive ongoing support as they develop their plans throughout 2019.
