MNAFEE Conference 2013 - PreK-3rd Grade
Click Here for File One of our discussion topics was early childhood administration. While you play a critical role, please keep in mind that other administrators are also required in order to make the model successful. It is for this reason that PreK-3rd Grade conferences (e.g. MDE in 2011, Harvard PreK-3rd Institute in 2012, and Northland Foundation in 2013) often require team registrations. PreK-3rd is a collaboration and shared efforts. Thankfully, momentum is growing and others are understanding the importance of early childhood and alignment. For example, the Minnesota Elementary School Principals Association (MESPA) is lobbying for the model.
If you do not yet have adequate support from other district administrators, you can still move forward with strategies, practices and improvements you can control or influence.
