TK Stipend Webinar

The California Transitional Kindergarten Stipend Program

Wednesday, May 27, 2015
1:30 – 2:45 p.m.

Last year’s state budget included an exciting opportunity to support transitional kindergarten and California State Preschool Program teachers in earning units in early childhood education. The California Transitional Kindergarten Stipend (CTKS) funding is intended to supplement existing efforts and investments for early learning professional development. The CTKS stipends for teachers will be administered by local planning councils (LPCs), allowing local flexibility in designing a program that will meet the needs of your community.

The webinar is intended for anyone involved in planning and implementing the CTKS program or training teachers, or anyone who is interested in learning more about the stipend program opportunity.

This webinar will give you an opportunity to hear from the California Department of Education on guidelines and logistics of the funding, as well as your colleagues in other counties who have begun implementing their programs. During the webinar, we will highlight three different approaches taken by counties across the state, including practical approaches to planning the program and innovative approaches to meeting teachers’ needs.
