This conference will explore opportunities to expand the accessibility of quality early childhood education programs by using public-private partnerships. The conference is being co-sponsored by the Illinois State Board of Education and is intended for Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Principals and Assistants, Administrators, Directors, representatives from the private sector, advocates, and scholars.
The first part of the day is designed to educate participants about the proven educational and economic returns on an investment in early childhood, particularly in an era of scarce resources. The conference will then highlight several successful public-private partnerships that have developed high quality and cost-effective preschool programs. The conference concludes with a panel on legal strategies for school districts to use in creating these programs.
The program has been approved for Continuing Professional Development credit from the Illinois State Board of Education.
