Register Now for the May 29th Self-Assessment Event!


MAY 29, SELF-ASSESSMENT: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., at PSESD in Renton

During the months of March and April, hundreds of site staff and families participated in surveys and focus groups to provide input on the Early Learning Program as part of our annual self-assessment process. On May 29, we would like to come together with families and staff to look at key themes we've identified from the data collected this spring. The purpose of this Self-Assessment event is to analyze and discuss input in order for staff and parents to make recommendations about how we should move forward to improve our Early Learning program.

PLEASE REGISTER by May 27th

Please work together at your center or site to recruit and register staff and parents/family members. Those who attend can be the same or different people (or a mix) who attended the focus groups. Only one person needs to register the group from your center. Include the number of staff and parents/family members on the registration page.

    • It is important that we gain input from a diverse group of parents, so please be sure to recruit a variety parents who represent the cultural and language groups in your program.
