Date: Tuesday July 17, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Conference 4

In the complex world of multiple public early childhood programs, system leaders must work together to provide families with the necessary support and information about the options available to them. In this session, learn about models of family engagement and consumer education regarding QRIS in three localities: Louisiana, Minnesota, and North Carolina (Durham County). Through a conversation about collaboration across systems and programs at both the state and county level, participants will learn about strategies currently in place and envision future solutions to engage families as they make choices for the early learning experiences they select for their children. 

Presenters: Danielle Johnson, Durham’s Partnership for Children; Sandy Myers, Minnesota Department of Education; Nasha Patel, Louisiana Department of Education; Nara Topp, Minnesota Department of Human Services
