In Summer 2022 Turn the Page STL director, Lisa Greening, brought together numerous pubic and private schools, organizations, and community members to discuss and find solutions to help our young children successfully transition to kindergarten.
The conversation and learnings, captured by University of Missouri St. Louis, can be found in the Kindergarten Readiness Work Team Report.
The key recommendation from the report, is to create a state wide pre-k to kindergarten transition policy staffed by state and local transition specialists.
Currently the St. Louis region Community Leader team is meeting with each school district to find out about current transition policies and strategies. Our findings will be reported in an upcoming newsletter.
