Recently, BUILD and the National Head Start Association co-hosted two webinars on strategies for alignment between Head Start and QRIS.  Leaders from state Head Start Associations and Head Start State Collaboration Offices joined state QRIS administrators to discuss areas of opportunity as well as share strategies overcoming challenges with alignment between the two systems, including reduction of duplication in monitoring and assessment, cross-walking of standards, and financing incentives and strategies.

The second webinar was held on June 15, 2011.
