When building QRIS, we must focus on high-quality coaching that promotes teacher growth and improves child outcomes. We’ll examine a systematic approach that combines CLASS data with individualized professional development to improve teacher-child interactions. We’ll review six principles to marry what we know from research works with classroom realities. Colleagues from a state-level implementation will discuss how they leveraged these strategies to deliver on the promise of CLASS.
