Training/Event Description:

This session will share how Illinois has shifted the role of technical assistance from “fixing” programs to facilitating sustained change by empowering program leaders to drive their own continuous quality improvement. The aim is to move away from “quality for a day” to promoting effective strategies that lead to meaningful quality improvements that will remain long after the quality rating and improvement system (QRIS) assessment. The starting point is providing an effective model and set of tools for program leaders.

Note that this session is part of the QRIS National Meeting: Building High-Quality Systems through QRIS and is sponsored by the BUILD Initiative and the QRIS National Learning Network .
