The Oregon Association for the Education of Young Children (OAEYC) honored TRI's Robyn Lopez Melton with an invitation to deliver the keynote speech at their Spring Conference on April 18th. Robyn serves as the director of Oregon’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS).
Her speech, "Eyes on the I - Exploring the role of Improvement in QRIS" stressed the focus on continuous improvement that belongs to both the child care programs participating in the QRIS process as well as the project itself. Oregon’s Quality Rating and Improvement System is continually working on its own Quality Improvement Plan, with the help of feedback from partners and participants.
Robyn Lopez Melton also facilitated an interactive discussion with a panel of three child care program directors who had successfully gone through the QRIS process. The panel described their experiences, including both the challenges and the rewards of becoming QRIS programs.See all News
