Birth to Grade Three Peer Exchange – September 2016
This peer exchange focused on the state education agency (SEA) role in building effective birth through third grade systems, including: 1) aligning state policy from birth through third grade in areas such as standards, assessment, and workforce development; and, 2) supporting local birth through third grade efforts.
The peer exchange examined several compelling initiatives underway across the country, starting with a preliminary webinar detailing a paper by CEELO, Building State P–3 Systems: Learning from Leading States (slides and a recording are available here.) This webinar was followed by an in-person peer exchange held in Washington, DC.
