Collaborative Networking Group (CNG)
The Collaborative Networking Groups (CNGs) are designed to address the needs of rural school districts. The CNGs are to provide opportunities for PAT staff to network, support and learn from each other. Content may include: recruitment strategies, forming a community advisory committee, delivery of the PAT components, implementation of the Foundational and PAT Approach, time management, organization of family and program files, DESE and PATNC specific information, along with other topics related to the PAT Program. A CNG is typically three hours in length. Once the initial CNG occurs, the intent is for those participating to continue to meet as a collective group.
