P3 Regional Collaboratives


With funding from the federal Preschool Development Grant (PDG), we have been able to select district and tribal partners that are ready to increase their P3 capacity by enhancing the effectiveness of their previous foundational work. Through a mentored partnership with MDE and other Regional Collaborative partners we will create a network of P3 initiatives that can model a strong understanding of P3 system building to other districts and communities throughout the state. During the P3 Regional Collaborative-Phase I project, MDE with our partners at DHS and MDH are focusing on the creation of effective collaborative, cross-sector partnerships who will work together to identify and develop P3 continuous improvement processes that are coherent, coordinated, and comprehensive. School district staff with other identified community partners will collaborate so that children and families are supported through cohesive early education and care programs and resources prenatally through grade three.
