The CouncilNational Quality Program Standards Update
Just a quick update on the new National Quality Program Standards Survey tool. We are currently aligned for a successful launch date of March 1, 2017. The development team will be providing an update and highlighting the system during the National Ag Ed Inservice at the end of January to all attending.
A few milestones we will be looking to meet will be the test environment launch the first of February. We will soon be sending out invitations for state staff to nominate teachers to volunteer and agree to work through the system to not only test it, but to track the time it takes for them to complete the process.
Please find an example of the Home page instructionsrecently developed to assist those completing the survey. This introductory piece provides you with a clear understanding of the purpose and process of the survey tool and its intended use and tips for using the process to be successful.
Again, just a short update and examples of the quality we can expect from the final product. We look forward to providing those attending with a complete overview during the National Ag Ed Inservice at the end of January.
