3 Preface Marin Community Foundation (MCF) and Marin County of Education (MCOE) have partnered to promote equity in education, address academic success for all targeted learners, and ensure quality instructional practices since the inception of the Marin Community Foundation in The mission of the Marin Community Foundation is to help improve the human condition, embrace diversity, promote a humane and democratic society, and enhance the community s quality of life now, and in the future. The charitable fund grew out of a bequest by Ross Matron, Beryl Buck. The funds generated from the Buck Trust are focused on Marin County needs. There were three special projects established for the Marin Community Foundation to be funded; Buck Center for Research on Aging, Buck Institute for Education, and Alcohol Justice. The grant distribution since its inception, in 1987, exceeds $1 billion dollars. Education in Marin is a fortunate recipient of generous funding from the Marin Community Foundation. PreK-3 Early School Success In , Marin Community Foundation, in partnership with Marin County Office of Education, embarked on an initiative focused on Early School Success. The design of the PreK-3 Early School Success was modeled after the Bremerton, Washington model of partnership through K-12 public schools with their community PreK partners, both private and public. The PreK-3 Initiative focuses on six specific elements for which each identified school submits a formal proposal addressing the enhancement of PreK-3 alignment in vision, school climate and cultural proficiency, teaching and learning, alignment, family engagement, and extended learning with community partners. Professional development and direct support to PreK-3 schools through site principals and facilitators are provided. Early Childhood Education Quality Improvement (QI) In , the Quality Improvement Project was funded by Marin Community Foundation. Leveraging quality Improvement resources from First 5 Marin, First 5 California, and the Department of Education, the Quality Improvement Project provides high quality professional development, 1:1 coaching, Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) assessments, technical assistance for preschool leaders and teaching staff in 11 preschools and 38 classrooms that feed into the elementary schools targeted by the PreK-3 Early School Success Initiative. Professional Growth and Staff Retention Early Childhood Educators and Transitional Kindergarten teachers are encouraged to continue their education and professional growth and development through various stipend programs from First Five California and California Department of Education in order to meet their credential requirements. Professional development opportunities are made available to comply with this requirement. Marin Child Care Commission The Marin County Child Care Commission serves as the state mandated Local Early Care and Development Planning Council. The Commission is charged for leading the community in planning and establishing a comprehensive, high quality early care and education system in Marin. Marin County Office of Education Early Childhood Department In , Marin Community Foundation continues its partnership with Marin County Office of Education to maintain the focus on PreK-3 and Quality Improvement Initiatives. Thanks to the generous funding from Marin Community Foundation, Marin County Office of Education is developing an 3

4 Early Childhood Department to provide direct services, professional development, common data collection and analysis, and coaching. The Early Childhood Education team, supervised by Assistant Superintendent Raquel Rose and with the direct support of Mary Jane Burke, Marin County Superintendent of Schools, is eager to formalize the program services and offerings. Additionally, the Marin County Child Care Commission Early Care and Education Local Planning Council Coordinator, is housed at Marin County Office of Education in the Early Childhood Education office. The collaboration is critically important and well supported.

5 PreK-3 Early School Success Dr. Jan LaTorre-Derby, PreK-3 Director Introduction to Programs In 2010, the Marin Community Foundation and the Marin County Office of Education began a partnership focused on Early Childhood Education with emphasis on addressing the achievement and opportunity gap for low income, dual language learners and children of color. The program design emphasizes aligning PreK- 3 in the Early School Success initiative. Ten targeted elementary schools, in four districts, were invited to apply for funding to support the following six elements: Vision, Climate/Cultural Proficiency, Teaching and Learning, Family Engagement, Alignment, and Extended Learning. Most recently, for , two critically important, components were added: Data Driven Decision Making and Leadership Capacity proposals were submitted to Marin Community Foundation from each of the 10 participating schools for approval of the explicit program elements. PreK-3 elementary districts consist of the following: Novato Unified School District, San Rafael City Schools, Shoreline Unified School District, Sausalito-Marin City School District and their partner preschools. Design Teams and staff participate in professional development designed by Marin County Office of Education to create the systemic change required to ensure a seamless PreK-3 instructional delivery model. Each elementary school partners with PreK programs that serve the same population of families: Marin Head Start, Community Action Marin, North Bay Children s Center, Shoreline Acres, Papermill Creek, Pickleweed, Bahia Vista and San Pedro State Preschools, and Novato Youth Center. Additionally, outside agencies support program delivery. Cross District Learning Walks are promoted to support best practice in the implementation of the six elements of the PreK-3 Initiative. Professional development aligned with the defined six elements occurs as listed below.

Collaboration with partners in early childhood childcare and education community provides rich opportunities to early care and education professionals in the broader community. Partners include: College of Marin, First 5 Marin, Marin Child Care Council, and the Marin Association for Education of Young Children. The exceptional quality of the professional development and direct coaching is resulting in systems change to enhance learning. Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) assessment results indicate that instructional practices and relationships between students and teachers is thriving in the 38 preschools receiving services in the targeted Quality Improvement preschools. Coaching is an integral component of the Quality Improvement program and relationships, trust building, and risk taking are evident.

Marin County Child Care Commission Early Care and Education Local Planning Council Ericka Erickson, Local Planning Council Coordinator The Marin County Child Care Commission provides a forum for the identification of local priorities for child care and early learning services, the development of policies and strategies to meet these priorities, and the impact analysis of state and federal policies, proposed legislation or regulation. Established in July of 1995 by the Board of Supervisors, the Commission also acts as the Local Child Care and Development Planning Council 1, supporting the overall coordination of child care services. The Commission conducts a mandated community-wide needs assessment, followed by a county-wide strategic plan for child care services every five years. It also advises and makes recommendations to policymakers to promote and plan for quality child care and development for the benefit of all children (birth to 13), their families and Marin County. Meetings are open to the public and are held on the First Tuesday of every other month at 3:30pm. 1 The primary mission of the Local Child Care and Development Planning Councils (LPCs) is to plan for child care and development services based on the needs of families in the local community. LPCs are intended to serve as a forum to address the child care needs of all families in the community for all types of child care, both subsidized and non-subsidized. There are currently LPCs representing each county in California (California Department of Education. (2015) 8
