ACROSS NH Quality Readiness Cohort for OST: Supporting OST Programs and Child Care Programs with an OST Component in Applying for Granite Steps for Quality

This voluntary cohort is provided by ACROSS NH trainers that are SACERS-U Anchors. The cohort is designed to support programs to become “quality ready” to apply for a Granite Step for Quality. The cohort provides the GSQ required “Introduction and Overview of the Environment Rating Scales (ERS) and School Age Care Environment Rating Scale (SACERS)” training. The cohort provides additional trainings that cover each of the 6 subscales of the School Age Care Environmental Rating Scale-Updated (SACERS-U), and Technical Assistance on how to use the SACERS-U tool, as requested by programs. Participants will receive professional development hours credit in their NHCIS account for each training that is completed. The cohort also provides Technical Assistance for applying for the NH Afterschool Credential. For more information about the Granite Steps for Quality, frequently asked questions about GSQ the can be found here.
