Good Morning!  Please share this information with those in your LEA who would be involved with the transition to Kindergarten.

The USBE in coordination with Utah Head Start Collaboration Office and Department of Workforce Services - Office of Childcare are excited to announce an opportunity to participate in a summit focused on the transition to kindergarten.  This Transition Summit is a unique opportunity to gather as early childhood leaders to focus on the transition to kindergarten.  The goals of this workshop are to:

  *   identify effective community transition and alignment practices
  *   anticipate and problem-solve around key barriers to effective practices
  *   discuss participants' perspectives on key outcomes that support buy-in.
During this workshop participants will be given information on the transition requirements in Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  There will also be the opportunity to learn from leaders in the field, time to evaluate current practices, and access strategies and tools to coordinate transition procedures.
