2021 Educare Learning Network Meeting
Week of April 26, 2021 Virtual
The Annual Educare Learning Network Meeting is the culminating Network development experience of the year. Bringing together interdisciplinary teams from each school along with local and national partners, the Educare Learning Network meeting provides a forum in which Educare leaders can share, problem-solve and receive technical assistance and support regarding issues of program and policy development, implementation and continuous improvement of the Educare Model. This year’s event will be virtual.
