The NCC is collaborating with the SEA in Maine to create a more focused system of support to improve the quality of publicly funded preschool programs as the state rolls-out new program quality standards. Over the next several months, NCC will work in partnership Maine as they develop and pilot a monitoring plan and protocols that not only serve as a means for promoting compliance and accountability, but that also helps programs achieve high-quality early learning programs. The goal in Maine is to design a monitoring system that creates a system of continuous program improvement and assists the Maine Department of Education to be a better advisor and partner with local programs.
