Topic:LEA and CBO Partnerships – Universal Prekindergarten, State Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten and Beyond


Join EveryChild California and your community of ECE Leaders as we discuss the latest topics impacting our field. ECE Community Connections are led by practitioners from across the state who are willing to share their best practice to help support your success.

This month’s topic is “LEA and CBO Partnerships – Universal Prekindergarten, State Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten and Beyond

We will be joined by several EveryChild California Members who are building partnerships to support a successful Universal Prekindergarten plan. UPK will bring together programs across early learning and K-12, relying heavily on Universal Transitional Kindergarten (UTK) and California State Preschool Program (CSPP), as well as Head Start, community-based organizations (CBOs), and private preschool to ensure every four-year old child – regardless of background, race, zip code, immigration status, or income level – has access to a quality learning experience the year before kindergarten.

We will have a brief review of the State’s UPK efforts so far, with particular focus on the emphasis of creating partnerships between LEAs and CBOs Our guest speakers will share their experiences and advice around their own efforts. As a thank you for joining us, we will share with you our exclusive CBO letter template designed to be an introduction of your program to LEAs in your area!
