Working Conference on Preschool-to-School Linkages (Louisville, Kentucky, November 21-22, 1991).
Appalachia Educational Lab., Charleston, WV.; Kentucky Head Start Collaboration Project.
The goal of this conference was to assist early childhood professionals in their efforts to provide training to parents and family-focused, community-based transitions between preschool and school. The conference was also designed to assure children access to a high quality, developmentally appropriate preschool; adequate nutrition; and health care. Introductory materials contained in the conference packet include the conference agenda, a list of conference participants, and a paper describing the guideposts for achieving the nation's educational goals for the year 2000 announced by the President in April 1991. Conference papers discussed: (1) policy perspectives on excellence in early childhood education and parental involvement in education; (2) models of collaboration between organizations and individuals involved in early childhood education; (3) early childhood transitions of disabled children in general, and a particular program implemented in Kentucky; (4) early childhood education policy issues; (5) planning for parental involvement in early childhood education; and (6) suggestions for developing a collaborative transition plan. Other materials include descriptions of technical assistance services provided by agencies in six states, a collection of ERIC Digests on issues relevant to early childhood education, and a list of resources published by the ERIC Clearinghouse on Rural Education and Small Schools.
