Regional and State Preschool Meetings

CDE Regional Preschool Meetings

Regional preschool meetings occur in the Fall of each school year, typically in from late September to early November. The meetings are collaborative opportunities for the CDE Preschool Team, comprised of Preschool Special Education and the Colorado Preschool Program to engage with early childhood leaders in the field who are preschool special education administrators, Child Find Coordinators, preschool directors, and CPP Coordinators. Meetings are designed for meeting the needs of these leaders and attendance is limited to these roles. Special education directors should attend, at their discretion.

This school year, 2022-23, the CDE Preschool Team will convene face-to-face for regional preschool work sessions to network share, and learn. Sessions will be focused on providing special education for preschool students in inclusive environments, identification of children for special education in a mixed delivery system, and CPP Implementation in its final year.

What are the topics?

  • Examining family data and Standard 5 - Sharing Power, from the National Standards for Family-School Partnerships
  • Discussing a journal article in small groups that explores the implementation of inclusive practices
  • Using the Preschool Inclusion Toolbox for policy discussion
  • Assessing how local systems work together to support young children with delays or disabilities to be identified and have access to needed services as early as possible

CDE Statewide Preschool Meeting

The statewide preschool meeting is held in early spring of each year. Sessions are provided to promote the continuous improvement of inclusive preschool practices and the leadership capacity of preschool general and special education administrators, Child Find Coordinators, CPP Coordinators and other administrators who oversee the preschool special education process.
