Quality Improvement Planning Community of Practice (QIP CoP)
Each month early educators at sites rated through Quality Matters meet to focus on an element of California’s QRIS matrix (PDF). There are speakers and opportunities for early educators to discuss promising practices that their sites are using. Meetings include group discussions and one-on-one technical assistance to support sites in developing plans for quality improvement.
