Connecting with Quality Standards 17 Essential Requirements Plus 100 Standards Basis for Quality Endorsement of PAT Affiliates Beginning in 2015-16 – 20% of Affiliates each Year in Kansas (5 Year Implementation) Success = all Essential Requirements along with 75% of the Standards
The Process: Step 1 Because the Essential Requirements are fundamental to successfully replicating and implementing the PAT model with fidelity, the Essential Requirements Review is the first step in the endorsement process. Fidelity is demonstrated when an affiliate meets or exceeds the essential requirements.
Step 2 Programs that meet or exceed all 17 essential requirements continue on to prepare the Affiliate Self-Study. Through the self-study, affiliates illustrate how they meet the 100 additional quality standards, identifying strengths and making improvements along the way.
Step 3 Once all the self-studies have been submitted for a given year, the PAT reviewers at the national center conduct an administrative review of those rated as meeting 75 or more of the quality standards. The PAT reviewers then select a percentage of these self-studies for a more in-depth review.
Technical Assistance Would like regions to go through Quality Endorsement at the same time (peer support and easier to provide technical assistance geographically) Will be providing limited on site technical assistance based on review of data in APR and PMR. Planning in 2014-15. PAT National will be providing a Quality Endorsement Manual with more information including documentation.
