SECC/AIR Senior TA Consultant Debbie Meibaum and SECC staff collaborated with MDE staff to develop a draft of revisions for Year 4 of the Mississippi Early Childhood Project work. The Mississippi Head Start Association, Mississippi Department of Human Services, Mississippi Department of Education, and Head Start Collaboration Office held the 2015 Mississippi Early Childhood Conference in Natchez. The conference was at the Natchez Convention Center on July 21 and 23. Topics related to all aspects of early childhood were a part of this conference, including social-emotional development, thematic units, mathematics strategies, literacy strategies, inclusion of children with special needs, circle time, music, ECERS, technology, the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment, and Child Find. In addition, there was a pre-conference day for teachers and administrators prior to the conference on July 20. SECC staff also collaborated with the MDE director of early childhood to plan next month’s stakeholder meeting.
