The Birth to Grade 3 Committee began in October 2011. The intent of this committee is to support early childhood and home child care programming, within and outside of the district in order to increase access to quality programs, enhance services and align the K-3 system to preschool programs already in place.
The committee has five work groups:
- Support & Resources for Families & Community
- Readiness & Tranistion
- Professional Development
