The Center on Early Learning at Teaching Research hosted over 20 agencies from across the state to support efforts to improve the care and education of children in Oregon. Staff from three state funded projects at TRI along with professionals from 12 Child Care Resource & Referral agency, and partners from the Oregon Early Learning Division,  the Oregon Center for Career Development (OCCD), the Inclusive Child Care Program (ICCP), Oregon Ask, and Teen Parent Programs among others.

Participants, who are all involved with implementing the field test of Oregon’s Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS), spent the day reviewing the QRIS process and providing feedback on making the system work more efficiently and effectively for early childhood programs seeking QRIS designation.
