Improving Systems, Practices and Outcomes

System Framework for Part C & Section 619

Building and sustaining high-quality early intervention and preschool special education systems is a complex process for state agencies. To support states, ECTA Center developed PDF: A System Framework for Building High-Quality Early Intervention and Preschool Special Education Programs to address the question:

"What does a state need to put into place in order to encourage/support/require local implementation of evidence-based practices that result in positive outcomes for young children with disabilities and their families?"

A circle is arrayed with six tabs evenly spaced around it. In the center: Building High-Quality Systems. In the tabs around it: Governance, Finance, Personnel, Data System, Accountability and Quality Improvement, Quality Standards
