The Southeast and Midwest Comprehensive Centers at American Institutes for Research are cohosting an early childhood institute entitled, Nurturing High-Quality Early Learning and Leadership Across the Pre-K-3 Continuum. The purpose of the institute is to convene early education teams from various states to collaboratively engage in discussions on research-based information and explore evidence-based early childhood resources. Participants will engage in sessions led by experts in the field, hear about the progress and challenges other states are facing, and discuss strategies for improving early childhood supports for Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) implementation efforts. The two-day institute will take place September 27–28, 2017, at the Renaissance Concourse Atlanta Airport Hotel. It will begin with a networking meet-and-greet on the evening of September 26. Participation is by invitation only.
