Comprehensive Support for MESRP

MESRP teachers receive monthly professional development where regional teachers share curriculum and best practices with each other. With emphasis on literacy, English Language Development (ELD), math, and social/emotional development, and based on Pre-Kindergarten standards, these trainings provide teachers opportunities to build on their existing skills while learning new activities.
