November 28, 2022 • Strategy 1 Update

The Strategy 1: EC - 12+ Academic Achievement Committee has met once on November 1, 2022. During this meeting the committee established norms and reviewed the EC-12+ Academic Achievement goals and outcomes from the strategic plan. The Early Childhood scope and sequence was the focus of the first committee meeting. Background information on the current programs offered to Derby families and students in the birth to PreK age range was provided. The current programs discussed included the Early Childhood Block Grant (ECBG) pre-K Program at Wineteer, the Parents As Teachers (PAT) program, the Child Find process and The Opportunity Project. Next the subcommittee broke into teams and reviewed the current KSDE Early Childhood standards that include developmental goals for kids age birth-5 years old and the referral process for our Early Childhood program from Kansas Department of Health and Environment and other sources. Casey Lucas, co-chair and Assistant Director of Special Seervices provided an overview of our current early childhood (EC) classrooms across our eight of our nine elementary schools. The Strategy 1 subcommittee members were asked to voluntarily sign up for a workgroup to begin working on the EC Scope and Sequence and report progress back to the committee at subsequent meetings. The first EC Scope and Sequence Workgroup meeting occurred on November 10, 2022 to review a variety of EC scope and sequence samples from other organizations and districts both locally and from other states. The workgroup members then discussed our feedback from EC teachers, our current EC instructional needs and the created this draft EC Scope and Sequence template for full Strategy 1 subcommittee feedback. The next subcommittee is scheduled for November 16, 2022.
