QRIS Environment Rating Scale Policy RevisionEEC Board MeetingJanuary 14, 2014
Challenges Presented by Current ERS Policy • At all levels the environment rating scales contain between 39-43 items. If any one of these items falls below the QRIS Level requirements, EEC is unable to grant the program’s/provider’s level. • The current scoring requirement of a 3, 5 or 6 on all individual ERS items, is not necessarily indicative of low program quality. For example, some programs/providers may score low on an item because, as a result of bussing, they have limited greetings and departures with family members. • Facility and program structure limitations are a barrier for some programs. For example, if a facility does not have an adult only dedicated restroom, they cannot meet the QRIS Level 2 requirements. • Certain subscales are more directly linked to child outcomes. The current ERS policy does not address this in any way.
