After the teams worked collaboratively, they were asked to summarize their ideas into two categories: 1) strengths (things we want to keep doing) and, 2) areas to grow. Each team had an opportunity to report their summary to the group. In general, the group expressed appreciation for the time to work together with their team and the chance to think about where their PDS work is headed. Peggy announced the agenda for the Spring Institute, which will be held at Indianapolis Children's Museum during the week of April 14, 2008. The specific date will be announced shortly. Each site was asked to continue their work from the morning and bring rough draft ideas for 2008-2009 PDS goals to the next meeting, along with perceived obstacles and needs to accomplish those goals. Each site was encouraged to bring a team to the next meeting.
