Increasing Full-Year Learning Opportunities for Younger Learners
The Center for District Innovation and Leadership in Early Education and the Partnership for Children and Youth recently co-presented a webinar on Increasing Full-Year Learning Opportunities for Younger Learners. The webinar examined the overlap of early education and expanded learning, the differences between ASES and ELO-P, and the differences between early education funds that could be braided with expanded learning funds. Early education district leaders shared how districts and their partners can leverage the unique, flexible summer learning space and the influx of resources to meet the state’s dual promise of Universal Pre-Kindergarten and expanded learning. They also discussed things to consider for younger learners in planning for expanded learning and how expanded learning will look different for younger learners.
