calendar icon Elementary Principal Networking

In FY2017, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Elementary School Principal Association (formerly known as MESPA), the Early Learning team co-hosted 6 regional focus groups with elementary principals from across the state. Discussions were focused on practices in the Preschool through Grade 3 (PK-Grade 3) space and specific topics included but were not limited to: social and emotional learning, the role of play in learning in the early grades, retention of young children, collaboration with community-based providers and professional/leadership development. From those focus groups came a request for continued opportunities for elementary principals to network on topics related to early learning (PK-Grade 3).

In response, the Department, in collaboration with the Massachusetts School Administrators’ Association (which now incorporates the former MESPA), will host 3 rounds of regional network sessions for elementary principals on various early learning topics.
