LEES Program provides an extended professional development program for public school districts in New Jersey. It consists of an in-district workshop followed up with professional learning communities (PLC) throughout the school year.
The workshop focuses on early literacy instruction that supports dual language and literacy development in preschool.
To support the implementation of the strategies presented in the PD sessions, Professional Learning Communities (PLC) of preschool teachers and paraprofessionals are formed at each school.
Facilitated by a Professor-in-Residence (PIR) who has extensive experience in early childhood education, PLCs meet once a month for six months to review key topics, share experiences, and discuss implementation challenges.
