Preschool For All & Preschool For All-Expansion Administrator Forum
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
ISBE is hosting a Preschool for All (PFA) and Preschool for ALL Expansion (PFA-E) Administrator Forum at the I-Hotel in Champaign on September 25 and 26, 2018. ISBE strongly encourages all PFA and PFA-E administrators to attend. This is a biennial forum, so there will be much to hear and learn if you did not attend in 2016. Whether you’re new to administering these grants or want to expand your skills, the forum will have something for you - seminars on implementing your grant, informative sessions on best practices and innovative strategies, round tables on hot topics, networking opportunities, resources to support you in your work, and a tour of a GOLD-rated early childhood center. The forum will start with continental breakfast on the morning of September 25 with sessions specifically targeted to new administrators and newly funded programs, though all are welcome. All administrators are strongly encouraged to arrive for the opening and lunch, followed by interactive sessions, and a tour of a GOLD-rated PFA site. Day 2, September 26, begins with continental breakfast, a featured speaker, and breakout sessions including grant compliance, ECERS-3, monitoring, Pyramid Model, community collaboration, inclusion, leadership, family engagement, young English Learners, as well as roundtable opportunities and resource tables. Lunch will be provided. Registration information and forum details can be found on the Early Childhood Professional Learning web site at eclearningil.org.
There is a block of sleeping rooms available under the “ISBE Administrators’ Forum” for Monday, Sept. 24, 2018, and Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2018.
