Seeking Input from Pre-K-2 Educators

  Seeking Input from Pre-K-2 Educators   Dear Early Childhood Educators and Administrators,   The California Department of Education would like to hear from you! This is an exciting time for California in which we are reviewing and revising the Preschool Learning Foundations (PLF) and the Desired Results Developmental Profile (DRDP) to incorporate recent research in the field, including best practices to support equity, dual language learners, and the inclusion of children with disabilities. In support of the CDE’s P-3 initiative, we are exploring the extension of the PLF to inform frameworks for K-2 as well as aligned assessments in early elementary school. We invite you – preschool, TK, and K-2 educators, family child care providers, and administrators, coaches, or trainers – to share your suggestions, questions, and feedback in virtual focus groups.   If you are interested in participating in a focus group about the PLF, we will be conducting these in the coming weeks. If you are interested in participating in a focus group on the DRDP, we will be conducting these meetings in the coming months. Please read more and fill out an interest form. Those selected for a focus group will receive a $50 stipend as compensation for participating.   We look forward to hearing your input.   Sarah Neville-Morgan, Deputy Superintendent Opportunities for All Branch California Department of Education  

¡Educadores y administradores de la primera infancia, el Departamento de Educación de California le gustaría escucharlos! Este es un momento emocionante para California en el que estamos repasando y revisando los Fundamentos del Aprendizaje Preescolar (PLF) y el Perfil de Desarrollo de Resultados Deseados (DRDP) para incorporar estudios recientes, incluyendo las mejores prácticas para apoyar la equidad, los aprendices de dos idiomas y la inclusión de los niños con discapacidades. En apoyo de la iniciativa P-3 del CDE, estamos explorando la extensión del PLF para informar marcos para K-2, así como evaluaciones alineadas en la escuela primaria temprana. Los invitamos (educadores del preescolar, TK y K-2, proveedores de cuidado infantil en el hogar y administradores, capacitadores o entrenadores) a compartir sus sugerencias, preguntas y comentarios en grupos de enfoque virtuales.   Si está interesado en participar en un grupo de enfoque sobre el PLF, lo realizaremos en las próximas semanas.
