The Race to the Top PreK-3rd Grade Team recently presented the first in a series of spotlight videos which are being created in an effort to share forward thinking and replicable initiatives across the Road Map Region. The first of these videos highlights Meadow Crest, a progressive early learning school in Renton School District that houses Head Start, ECEAP and Inclusive Preschools within the same building. Meadow Crest’s alignment efforts are moving far beyond a common location to include curriculum, calendar, hiring processes and combining classes across programs.
