Thank you to the dedicated leaders who participated in the SECC Early Childhood Community of Practice cross-state collaboration virtual meeting, Standards Alignment, on August 30. Instructional Learning Manager Demetria Joyce from Georgia DECAL’s Professional Learning Unit and Voluntary PreKindergarten Education Program Director Melinda Webster from the Florida Department of Education Office of Early Learning presented their processes for developing their standards alignment publications. The ideas you discussed are valuable in guiding the decisions and direction that your agencies take. We hope that the interstate relationships will continue to flourish and that you will call on each other for further collaboration. We look forward to providing opportunities for more conversations such as these. A recording of the meeting and materials shared will be archived on the Communities of Practice page of the Southeast Comprehensive Center website.
This month, the state of Georgia’s resources on kindergarten entry assessments are highlighted in the Resource Spotlight section of the CoP. Please be sure to review it.
