Program Focused Program Support is a model that approaches the program holistically and brings all the necessary supports together into the program (technical assistance, coaching, consultation, PLCs, and professional development training) to improve program quality. These supports will lead to improvements in the knowledge, skills, practices and dispositions of early childhood and ASOST professionals and enhance program quality.



Through the Region 5 Educator and Provider Support (EPS) grant, the Southeast Education Professionals Partnership (SEEPP), is committing resources to provide this "Program Focused Support" to eligible programs that apply through our website. Every effort will be made to select programs that are representative of the mixed delivery system and have a balance within the cities and towns of Region 5.

What makes a program eligible for consideration?

Programs wishing to participate in the Program Focused Support Program must show a commitment to program quality and program improvement. This may be evidenced by participation in QRIS or accreditation, through identified needs in a Continued Quality Improvement Plan (CQI) or Program Professional Development Plan (PPDP) and/or staff Individual Professional Development Plans (IPDP).

How does a program apply?

Programs wishing to be considered to participate in the Program Focused Support Program must complete an application form and submit to the SEEPP. 


Applications will be accepted throughout the Fiscal Year and must include the PQ Registry Educator Profile summary for all educators in the program. Programs will be considered pending available EPS funding. 

Visit our website for more information on expectation and the selection process of the program! For question regarding applications, please email  kailey.brennan@cdedu.us
