SAVE-THE-DATE – A Plan to Ensure High Quality Instruction in All VPI Classrooms


Please join Virginia Department of Education for one of the webinars listed below.  VDOE will be providing an overview of the newly created Plan to Ensure High-Quality Instruction in All Virginia Preschool Initiative Classrooms (attached).  In response to the 2018 General Assembly, the VDOE created this plan to help ensure that the VPI, which serves nearly 18,000 at-risk children across 1,300 classrooms, provides a high-quality preschool experience that helps prepare each 4-year-old served for kindergarten. The plan aggregates lessons learned from the JLARC study, Virginia Preschool Initiative Plus implementation, and University of Virginia – Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL). As requested by the General Assembly, the plan covers the areas of Curriculum, Teacher-Child Interactions, and Professional Development.  This plan includes additional requests for funding from the 2019 General Assembly for full implementation.

  •  Wednesday, December 12 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.


  • Tuesday, January 8 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.

 If several educators from one school division or locality will be joining a webinar, it would be helpful if the group could meet in a room with a computer and telephone and listen together as a group.  It is recommended that technology and audio connections are tested out ahead of time when gathering a group together to participate in a webinar. There are a limited number of call-in lines permitted on one webinar (no more than 100 - first come, first served).  We will record one of the webinars and provide a link to the recording.
