Detail:

When defining quality and investing in improvement, early care and education fails to consistently focus on key levers for change – the organizational climate and conditions that support teachers and teaching.  Yet, this type of “climate change” is desirable. Indeed, relationships and collaboration enable collective responsibility and routine action towards continuous improvement. This session will showcase two organizational measurement tools and provide examples of data-use efforts to inform improvement efforts in several settings.
