Leadership Institutes

The ECPC Leadership Institutes focus on developing strategies with Part C and B(619) Coordinators to integrate their programs, policies, and personnel into State early childhood initiatives for infants and young children who receive services under IDEA. The Institutes discuss topics related to the history and structure of the early childhood community, family perspectives, workforce issues, collaboration, and leadership and sustainability. With the guidance of an ECPC-provided Leadership Consultant, leadership teams from each participating State develop a personalized action plan that will be implemented in their State post-Institute.

The 3 day ECPC Leadership Institute focuses on developing strategies to enable IDEA early childhood leaders to integrate their planning with state early childhood programs and partners. The focus of the institute is on leadership, workforce development and early childhood initiatives. Leadership teams from each participating state develop a work plan which they will implement in in their home state.

 

To date, ECPC has recruited and trained three cohorts of states for Leadership Institutes. These cohorts are:
Cohort 1: Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Rhode Island, & South Carolina
Cohort 2: Alaska, District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nevada, Tennessee, Texas, & Virginia
