2019-2020 School Readiness and VPK Contracts Now Available on Provider Portal

The Office of Early Learning has now made the 2019-2020 School Readiness and VPK contracts available on the Provider Portal! The Provider Relations team is hard at work initiating your School Readiness Contracts. If your 19/20 Provider Profile is active and you indicated that you wish to participate in School Readiness, a contract has been initiated for you, provided you have been determined eligible for an SR contract based on your assessment score or exempt from the Program Assessment requirement.  
Please note that we are unable to initiate your SR contract until your Program Assessment has been completed and you are determined eligible to continue providing School Readiness services, this includes current PFP providers who will receive an additional assessment this program year. This additional requirement makes your timely submission of your SR contract extremely important. Please submit your contract as soon as possible, but no later than 2 weeks after we have initiated the contract for you.
It is imperative that all SR contracts are certified prior to the end of the current contract period on June 30, 2019. For this reason, we will be initiating only SR contracts at this time. Please see below for initiation and submission dates for your VPK contracts.
VPK contracts for providers who have selected advance payment will be initiated by the ELC by Monday May 6th and should be submitted by providers by Friday May 17th.
VPK contracts for those providers not selecting advance payment will be initiated by the ELC by Friday May 24th and should be submitted by Friday June 21st.
If you have not yet submitted your 2019-2020 Provider Profile, please remember that this is the first step to completing your School Readiness and VPK contracts. All profiles for providers intending to contract for School Readiness or VPK should now be submitted, as we are reviewing and activating them daily. We appreciate your patience as our team works to process a large number of contracts in a short period of time. We will update you on expected processing times as contracts are submitted. 

The Provider Portal is available for you to complete and submit your School Readiness and Voluntary Prekindergarten  Service Agreement applications.  The Provider Portal is a web-based system that supports provider services offered by the Coalition.  

There are a variety of tools and supports available to assist child care providers in getting to know the Provider Portal, including your assigned Provider Relations Specialist, online video tutorials and the Provider Portal Manual.   These tools will assist in accessing and navigating the Provider Portal.
