Tentative Summer Training Schedule for School Readiness Assessment Implementation

Mark your calendars! CDE will be hosting several regional trainings to help prepare kindergarten teachers and administrators for a smooth roll out of the components of School Readiness legislation.

As a result of attending a full-day training, participants will understand how to utilize Teaching Strategies GOLD as a primary formative assessment tool across multiple child domains as identified in legislation, create intentional observational opportunities to address a range of curricular focus areas, and learn best practices in planning for targeted and differentiated support of students in every day instructional experiences. Trainings will be valuable for those who are new to this tool, as well as those who are already familiar with it.

Trainings are scheduled from 8am-4pm, with a 1hour lunch break (b.y.o.), and will cover the same material in each location, so you can easily attend the training that is most convenient to you. Participants will also receive 1 continuing education credit upon completion.

*Please note, these dates and locations are subject to change depending on availability of space and number of teachers registered.
