PROVIDERS ADVANCING SCHOOL OUTCOMES (PASO)
WHY? CSPC recognizes the monumental achievement gap between Latino and non- Latino children in the State of Colorado. That gap does not start in middle school or high school, the gap starts when children enter Kindergarten. In order to close the achievement gap CSPC believes that we must start with our youngest children by educating and providing support to the women who care for them; hence Providers Advancing School Outcomes (PASO) was created.
The purpose of the Providers Advancing School Outcomes (PASO) training program is to create an equitable, replicable, community based model program for providing professional development in early childhood education to Latino, Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers to: promote school readiness to Latino children, birth to 5 years old, and to prevent the achievement gap between Latino and non-Latino children before they enter Kindergarten.
