Quality Improvement System (QIS) Update: Quality Improv. Plans & Awards

Quality Improvement System (QIS) Update
Quality Improvement Plans & Awards
Delaware’s revised QIS is well underway. DIEEC quality improvement specialists have been very busy partnering with programs to develop quality improvement plans. These plans are required to apply for the quality improvement awards designed to support programs in working toward improvements in 5 key practice areas. Please see the QIS revision webpage for more details.For state-funded ECE programs and programs that were rated at star levels 3-5 in the historical Stars system, your programs are now eligible to apply for quality improvement awards. Many programs have already begun working with their quality improvement specialists. If you do not yet have a visit scheduled and would like to get started building a quality improvement plan, please reach out to your TA or request support through the Delaware ECE portal – directions to access the portal were sent to historical Stars programs earlier today.

For all other licensed programs, your programs will be eligible to apply as of January 1, 2024. You’re welcome to begin working on your quality improvement plans now though. If you’d like to get started with a quality improvement specialist, please reach out to your TA or request support through this form.
