Continuous Improvement Process
BERK assisted PSESD in developing a Continuous Improvement process for its early learning programs (Head Start and Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program). We developed a Continuous Improvement Implementation Guide for assessing current performance, identifying desired improvements, and implementing change in a systematic, intentional way. The Guide provides an overview of continuous improvement concepts as well as directions for PSESD early learning teams to develop their continuous improvement process. We also designed an annual Self-Assessment Methodology, including suggestions for development of information needs and data collection methods.
As part of this process, we designed and facilitated a series of meetings for a Continuous Improvement Task Force comprised of PSESD leadership, center directors, subject matter experts, and parents.
