SPDG: Early Childhood (EC)

  • There were 8 implementation Districts/BOCES partnering with the SPDG. The number of classrooms per District/BOCES in which the Teaching Pyramid strategies were implemented ranged from six to sixty-four.
  • The majority of the activities were technical assistance to the eight leadership teams on a monthly basis. The technical assistance to these teams included assistance in completing the Benchmarks of Quality, helping in the development of action plans, as well as some training on the pyramid model, the TPOT, and the Inventory of Practices.
  • During the SPDG, all eight EC leadership teams, ranked themselves using the BoQ tool; however, only three had a pre/post score from year 1 to year 2. For these three teams the average percent of critical elements “in place” increased from 17.6% to 44.3%, which is an increase of 22.7%. All are on track to reaching fidelity by the end of the grant.
