State policies aligned with a QRIS are key to a successful implementation that will ensure critical objectives are met, such as providing families, particularly those from high-risk populations, better access to quality programs. Two approaches to aligning a state’s early care and education polices to work in conjunction with QRIS and its program quality improvement initiatives will be discussed with two states presenting examples of revisions to their state policies and processes.
