These are Collaborative Leadership, Effective Learning Experiences, Aligned Curriculum, Parent Involvement and Engagement, Professional Development, and Continuity and Stability.

Findings from the Midwest CPC expansion in the Saint Paul Public Schools, Rochester, and other districts will be highlighted. Resources will also be shared to promote P-3 development, alignment, progress monitoring, professional development, and implementation in districts and communities.
