Creating and Implementing Your Preschool Expulsion Policy
Tuesday, August 21, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
Beginning October 1, Indiana early childhood education programs that are eligible to accept Child Care Development Fund (CCDF) vouchers are required to have a policy on suspension and expulsion – and that policy must be clearly communicated to families before enrollment. This policy should promote positive social and emotional growth and should include age appropriate behavior supports. This professional development opportunity will define expulsion/suspension. Trainees will examine strategies to support children at risk for expulsion in addition to identifying tools and resources available to support teaching staff, administration, and families. Finally, trainees will fine-tune their thoughts and create a template for their policy.
