Minnesota PreK-3 Implementation
Minnesota P3 Implementation Model

Model Components & Supporting Resources


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 (Core Elements, Framework Components, and Implementation Drivers) and two results (Population and Program). The model guides the development of our professional learning opportunities, and can also be used to guide the implementation of local PreK-3 systems.

Key assumptions of the model:

  1. Throughout every level, the model is focused on building, developing, and supporting adult competencies. The knowledge, skills, and attitudes of all adults in the PreK-3 system are essential ingredients. Therefore, capacity-building is integrated into the model and necessary in all work.
  2. All PreK-3 capacity-building efforts should be systemic, integrated, and sustained. PreK-3 is not a educational fad or simply a strategy. Rather, it is a K-12 reform effort that involves creating and implementing a system.

Moral Imperative

  • Ensure maximum achievement of all students by collaborating to continually improve leadership, teaching, and systems.


  • Design, collaborate, and provide high-quality professional learning opportunities that support the implementation and enhancement of PreK-3 systems in Minnesota schools, districts, and communities.
