Dear Curriculum Directors and Preschool Coordinators/Directors:

We have had numerous requests from superintendents, curriculum and early childhood directors to discuss the preschool/kindergarten transition process. USBE will be hosting a Preschool/Kindergarten Transition Summit, to be held on Dec. 14, 2016, at USBE, 250 E 500 S., in Basement West, 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Further information will be given at the Nov. 8, 2016, Curriculum Director's meeting. Please see the attached flyer announcing the Summit. Details on registration will be forthcoming.

Summit Goals:

1)       Identify effective community transition and alignment practices.

2)       Anticipate and problem-solve around key barriers to effective practices.

3)       Discuss participants' perspectives on key outcomes that support buy-in.
Participants will receive:

1)       Research on transition and alignment practices and school readiness.

2)       Time to evaluate current practices.

3)       Opportunities to collaboratively explore next steps.

We look forward to working with you on the preschool/kindergarten transition process. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
