The Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge (RTT-ELC) and the Governor’s Early Childhood Advisory Councils (ECAC) emphasize the importance of strong, quality, cross sector early childhood systems of professional development (PD) at the local, regional and state level. This session will share strategies used in one state to develop such a system and provide participants an opportunity to share what is happening in their states. Tools developed by the National Professional Development Center on Inclusion (NPDCI) through their work with 8 states to support cross sector PD system development will be shared.
