From MA DESE: The Department's Early Learning Team is supporting the continued convening of the Program Quality Workgroup (PQW) with an added focus on science and technology/engineering (STE) in the early grades (grades 1-3). The STE subgroup of the PQW in 2019 will be focused on developing resources related to implementing the Science and Technology/Engineering standards in grades 1-3. If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the online survey by January 11, 2019. Meetings are scheduled from 10:00-3:00 on February 11; March 20; May 31, September 27, and November 22 in the Worcester area. The final location will be determined when the PQW and subgroups are established.
