why is pk succeeding
Why is PK succeeding?
  • Staff development is tailored for early childhood and is occurring every 6 weeks
  • Strong curriculum in place (pulled best pieces from several resources)
  • Hiring people with knowledge of child development
  • Using para professionals as second facilitator of learning…active in small group rotations
  • All para’s required to attend staff development on district days
  • Partnerships with Special Education
  • Shift in “philosophy” for building leaders…seeing PK as a critical foundation for later academic success!
  • And…Leadership and support is starting at the top of HEB!
