Participation in the 2016 institute is limited to 28 teams per region. Participating teams will be selected through an application process. Districts and birth-5 early learning programs may submit applications for more than one team, if each applying team represents a different elementary school and birth-5 feeder school/program. Teams should be built around a specific elementary school(s), its feeder early-learning programs, and the local community. Selected teams will participate in this 3-day event focusing on Kristie Kauerz’ Framework for Planning, Implementing, and Evaluating Pre-K-3rd Grade Approaches.
