Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:BackgroundThe State is currently in a Learning Year using CLASS to create a baseline for the unified rating and improvement system. Last school year (2014-15), the State field tested the system using CLASS with six communities to better understand what communities need to improve teacher-child interactions. The six field test communities are representative of the diversity of Louisiana. As shown in the aggregate data below from the field test, classrooms generally need more support in the Instructional Support Domain for PreK. A similar trend is seen in the Engaged Support for Learning Domain for Toddler. In the fall of 2015, each Community Network Lead Agency was required to complete one CLASS observation in each publicly-funded early learning center. These CLASS observation results were very similar to the field test data showing that classrooms generally need more support in the Instructional Support Domain for PreK. Contractors should be cognizant of the field test and fall, 2015 data when submitting a proposal and ensure that responses reflect a direct connection to improving teacher-child interactions. See the data in Table 1 below.
