Program Administration Scale & Business Administration Scale | TQRIS

As part of the Race-to-the-Top/Early Learning Challenge, California developed a hybrid model for its statewide QRIS which includes 17 local Consortia.  There are five possible tiers in the quality rating framework with three tiers common to all Consortia and two tiers which can be individualized by the local Consortia to best meet the needs of their communities. The Program Administration Scale (PAS) and the Business Administration Scale for Family Child Care (BAS) are included in the Core Tools and Resources which, together with the Hybrid Matrix, comprise the California Quality Continuum Framework. As part of the federal grant, data will be gathered regarding how these tools and resources are used by the Consortia. For more information visit:
