March 12th All Teams’ Meeting

Mahalo nui loa to everyone who attended our March 12th All Team’s Meeting.  Given everyone’s  busy schedules and legislative session demands, we had about 85 partners attend!  It is a gift to have the opportunity to come together three times a year to celebrate progress, be inspired and learn in cross-teams.  I will be posting the presentation materials, but in the meantime, please see agenda below.  We had the privilege of hearing from families about how “they system” has effectively partnered with them to support their young children.  We also heard recommendations for improvement.  We then took that information and worked in cross-teams to identify ways we can improve family partnerships and the tools that would be needed for professional development.  The feedback will go back to the Quality Team to inform the development of trainings on the Family Partnership Guidelines.  Thank you again for your active participation!

Our next All Teams’ meeting will be held August 13th, please save the date!  The meeting will be at Koolau Ballroom from 8:30-1:00.
