School Readiness providers serving children birth-5 are now required to participate in a program assessment observation, specifically the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®). This assessment measures the quality of interactions between the teachers and children. Many of you have already experienced this through Florida's Early Learning Performance Funding Project (ELPFP) or other quality programs. There will be no cost to providers for this annual assessment, and it will help with the forthcoming HB1091 guidelines.
To assist School Readiness providers in understanding the CLASS® program assessment and learn ways to improve CLASS® scores, OEL is offering support by providing School Readiness providers and their instructors with several opportunities to learn more about the tool, including access to the CLASS® Video library.
