The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction along with Children & Families requested that school districts who were engaged in 4K Community Collaborative approaches in the state share their story. We created a video to tell the story of our 4K Community Collaborative, Integrated approach through our 3 distinctive community sites (All Saints Catholic School, St. John Lutheran School and ADVOCAP Head Start). Perspectives were explored through the eyes of students, parents, teachers, aides and/or directors at the sites. We shared our 5 year journey, our child/family centered focus, our success, our challenges and our plans for the future. For more information about our 4K, visit our Curriculum page.
