School Readiness Assessment Trainings

The summer regional training series is now complete and was a huge success! The Office of Early Learning and School Readiness would like to thank our colleagues from across the state who engaged and participated with us in learning and clarifying our thinking around the importance of school readiness and the beneficial impact it has on kindergarten.  We will be scheduling additional regional trainings throughout the school year to support implementation efforts.  In the interim, should you need specific support, please feel free to contact anyone on the School Readiness Team.
