Universal Prekindergarten (UPK) planning and implementation in California has taken a collaborative approach. As part of this effort, the California Department of Education’s (CDE’s) Early Education Division and Expanded Learning Division, in partnership with the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE), convened a small team in response to the growing need for ELO-P providers to serve California’s younger children as Transitional Kindergarten (TK) is fully implemented.

Working together with a wide range of stakeholders from both the Early Learning and Expanded Learning fields, including representatives from state agencies, county offices of education, districts, intermediary organizations, and funders, this team created resources to help Local Educational Agencies and their ELO-P partners prepare to effectively serve our youngest learners.
