Stay Up to Date on CLASS and CLASS Happenings…
During the 2018 legislative session, the Florida Legislature passed a bill (HB 1091) that increases quality and accountability in the School Readiness Program. The Office of Early Learning (OEL) and Early Learning Coalition of Broward County partnered in the implementation of HB 1091 which is now called School Readiness Program Assessment (SRPA).
What is SRPA?
SRPA stipulates that SR providers are required to have a program assessment using the identified tool, CLASS®, Classroom Assessment Scoring System. This assessment primarily measures the quality of the classroom interactions between the teachers and the children. The rules below guide the implementation.
A rule workshop on Rule 6M-4.740 Program Assessment Requirements for the School Readiness Program and Rule 6M-4.741 Program Assessment Threshold Requirements for the School Readiness Program will be held via webinar on the following dates and times or until business is concluded, whichever is earlier: http://www.floridaearlylearning.com/statewide-initiatives/proposed-rules.
December 1, 2020, 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
December 2, 2020, 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
