Focus Group 1: • NOTE Assessment: NOTE is a new kind of simulation-based performance assessment that’s designed for the licensure of elementary teachers. In this demonstration, elementary school teachers will try out the assessment and get a first-hand look at our simulated classroom with student avatars. Participants will prepare for and complete a performance task carrying out the High Leverage Practice (HLP) of leading a group discussion with ELA content. All current or former elementary education teachers can participate in this opportunity.

No Kid Hungry works with education stakeholders to ensure children have access to meals in schools and year round. Educators are an integral part of the success in our work. In this focus group we hope to gain knowledge about teachers’ awareness about the National School Breakfast Program, their experience with the program, and how we can help educators have a voice in our work. We plan to use our recent survey results to capture educators’ perspective in our strategy going forward and also test some of our communications messaging.
