  1. Unifying expectations for high quality teaching and early learning (Birth to Five Standards)

  2. Supporting teachers and providers to reach expectations (Professional Development)

  3. Measuring and recognizing progress (CLASS & GOLD Assessments)

  4. Funding providers that serve children well (Performance Profile Ratings)

  5. Providing clear information and high quality choices to families (Coordinated Information & Enrollment Campaign)

    • Updated GOLD® OSEP Guidance: TS GOLD® OSEP Administrators should follow the same process for completing intended exit assessments for any children that would have been exited as a result of a withdrawal from ECSE services or within six weeks of the child’s 6th birthday. Administrators are encouraged to use any data collected during Winter checkpoint and input into the OSEP license to use as a final rating for this school year. Even if an administrator is exiting the child now, an exit assessment should include the end of the school year date and all ratings should be finalized before completing the exit assessment.
