Leading to Address Early Learning Inequities
The P-3 Leadership Certificate will provide elementary and early learning leaders with the skills and knowledge to lead cross-system improvements and to implement instructional reforms. This 10-month, fully online, executive-style program is for working professionals who want to engage in intentional and collaborative learning to deepen their understanding of child development, school leadership, and learning opportunities that dismantle historic inequities.
Our approach at the University of Colorado Denver is to support working professionals in an engaging, blended format of monthly modules completed through synchronous and asychronous sessions.
While school readiness and ready schools were priorities before the pandemic, they have become even more important as school districts, ECE programs, state agencies, and other stakeholders grapple with the inequitable opportunities provided to our youngest learners. Now is an opportune time for school leaders to re-imagine and invest deeply in their skills and knowledge to design school cultures and collaborative teamwork, informed by research, that will close early achievement gaps and support young learners.
