Early Learning in CCIP Submission: 2019-20 Update
This webinar will highlight the opportunities within CCIP to address early learning strategies and share examples of specific strategies and language to consider. We will share updates based on the revisions to CCIP for 2019-20. The content is developed for Local Education Agencies (LEA) staff.
The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), signed into law in December 2015, bolsters federal support for early learning and provides an opportunity to strengthen the birth-through-third grade continuum – a critical strategy to improve third grade reading proficiency. The Office of Early Learning and the NC Head Start Collaborative Office at the Department of Public Instruction have been partnering with the North Carolina Early Childhood Foundation (NCECF) to support LEAs and early childhood community leaders in collaborating to develop the early learning components of the LEA’s ESSA district plans.
