Access to quality education for every early learner: A deep dive into what’s working for Mobile County Public School System, Alabama
Thursday, November 19
10 AM—11:30 AM
Room W208

More than 70 classrooms across Mobile County Public Schools in Alabama are engaged in groundbreaking work yielding excellent results. Facing high and relatable early childhood challenges, we have found significantly effective strategies for us. To best utilize the expertise of our teaching professionals, meet individual student needs, and provide accessibility to all students, we use a combination of technology that compliments curriculum, teacher training, and family involvement. As a result, learning gaps are shrinking and teachers are gaining precious time to share strategies with each other and meet district expectations. MCPSS case studies and examples of implementation success will be covered followed by an address from Dr. Benjamin Heuston about the research and findings driving change in early learning.
