Speakers: Anne Zummo Malone and Kimberly Montalvo from AppleTree
Description: With increased funding and demand for early learning, many charter schools are considering whether to add Pre-Kindergarten to existing elementary schools.

We will focus on the importance of selecting a high-quality instructional model as part of charter school planning during this session.
