Minnesota PreK-3 Implementation
Minnesota PreK-3 Implementation Model

Model Components


This page contains information and resources that will help you understand our view of implementing PreK-3 systems. The model above contains three main components and two results.

One moral imperative guiding the model:

  1. Make a difference in the lives of children by collaborating to improve child outcomes.

Two key assumptions of the model:

  1. Throughout every level, the model is focused on building, developing, and supporting adult capabilities. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes of all adults in the PreK-3 system is an essential ingredient. Therefore, capacity-building is not a separate component in the model because it is integrated with and necessary throughout.
  2. All PreK-3 capacity-building efforts should be systemic, integrated, and sustained.

Three main professional development opportunities designed to support P3 implementation:

  1. Principal Leadership Series
  2. FirstSchool Online Course
  3. Building PreK-3 Systems: From Alignment to Coherence
