Step 4: The SLT establishes mechanisms for sustaining fidelity of practices.

  1. Communication and support mechanisms (shared web sites, learning communities, regular meetings) are developed for administrators, Implementation Teams and practitioners.
  2. Practices are reflected in early childhood standards, and pre-service and in-service education.
  3. Regular T&TA and coaching are maintained for all sites and targeted T&TA and coaching address any decline in outcomes or drift.
  4. Evaluations of fidelity and achievement of outcomes are built into on-going monitoring and quality assurance mechanisms.
