Title: SCHOOL READINESS A Community Conversation


1
SCHOOL READINESS A Community Conversation
  • MAY 3, 2012
  • SOUTHINGTON

2
Purpose of Community Conversation
  • To produce an open, unbiased and non-threatening
    conversation that examines public views to
    identify common ground for action on important
    issues in education.

3
Community Conversations about education provide
opportunities
  • For people from diverse backgrounds to speak
    openly in a safe environment
  • To clarify personal views on important
    educational issues through dialogue and
    discussion
  • To help find common ground for action among
    participants who may approach issues with
    different perspectives
  • To support participants as they explore
    differences in opinions

4
The Question for Southington
  • How do we ensure that all Southington
    children enter school ready to learn?

5
Approaches
  • A. Develop a system that provides access to high
    quality pre-school programs and experiences.
  • B. Improve the network of services for families
    of pre-school children.
  • C. Provide strong support to children once they
    enter school.

6
APPROACHES
  • Are conversation starters
  • Stimulate participants to sort through what is
    most important to them
  • Enhance the quality of the discussion

7
A Develop a system that provides high quality
pre-school programs and experiences.
  • Those who like this approach say
  • If we really want our community to have high
    quality preschool programs, we need to put our
    money where our mouths are

8
B Improve the network of services for families
of pre-school children.
  • Those who like this approach say
  • How can we expect children to enter school ready
    to learn if their families do not know what is
    expected of them?

9
C Provide strong support for children once they
enter school
  • Those who like this approach often say
  • Childrens needs can best be assessed once they
    enter school. More services should be provided to
    help all children be successful in the early
    years.
