    Hodges, WPSS Early Childhood Coordinator, Speaks at The Early Childhood Care and Education Commission in Baton Rouge

    Leslie Hodges, Washington Parish School System Early Childhood Coordinator, recently spoke at The Early Childhood Care and Education Commission in Baton Rouge.  The commission is charged with establishing the vision of the future of early childhood care and education in Louisiana, building on the work of Act 3 (2012).  The Commission report named key areas for study in year two, to strengthen early childhood care and education in Louisiana, which will drive meeting activities.  Hodges represented the Washington Parish School System to speak specifically about Locally-driven Decision Making which is one of the 4 key study areas.  Targeting locally-driven decision making, the Commission will study the Ready Start pilots where (a) the community establishes a formal local governance structure for shared decision making, (b) continually measures the need for affordable access and available resources and services for children ages birth through four, (c) identifies and maximizes resources and (d) determines how future access and quality dollars should be spent.
