Spotlight on Success: Early Childhood Symposium Proceedings (2nd, Atlanta, Georgia, October 1-2, 1992).
This document reports on a symposium on pre-school to school transition that was co-sponsored by the SouthEastern Regional Vision for Education (SERVE) and 13 other organizations and that brought together over 100 educators, human service providers, policymakers and business people to share their experiences in working to strengthen the transitions and linkages between pre-kindergarten and early elementary school. Programs featured in this symposium fell into four categories: (1) district-level programs; (2) school-based models; (3) comprehensive preschool models; and (4) parent involvement and education programs. The proceedings included three featured presentations on the topics of the changing demographics of the Southeast, the challenges and benefits of interagency collaboration, and the importance of seeking political support for improved practice. Appendices include the symposium agenda, a list of symposium sponsors, a list of promising programs and contacts, suggested readings on transition, and a list of conference participants. Order forms for SERVE products and services are provided. (MM)
