Quality Assurance for Afterschool Programs

Learn about the Texas Education Agency’s process to assure high-quality programming for 600+ afterschool programs funded by 21st CCLC. TEA’s contractor, Resources for Learning, will provide context for the new quality assurance process. The Texas ACE program defines quality in the Texas ACE Blueprint and present “stages of practice” within which programs and TEA can assess the extent of implementation for a defined set of quality indicators at the center level. The Quality Assurance Process (QAP), which is grounded in the Texas ACE Blueprint and operationalized through Quality Indicators (Qis), measures the overall grantee and individual centers’ progress toward optimal stages of practice.
