Quality is Contagious

Arizona Programs Are Making It Count for Kids!
Quality is Contagious
Has your program caught it?
Next week marks the one year anniversary since Arizona’s Quality Standards for Out-of-School Time Programs were first published.  What has happened in the twelve months since is incredible and Arizona’s program providers deserve the credit.

Quality is truly contagious!
In May, AzCASE released the Make it Count pledge giving program providers an opportunity to sign the pledge formally committing them to use the Arizona Quality Standards to strengthen their own programs.   We are proud to announce that more than 450 program sites statewide have stepped up to sign the pledge.   Arizona’s children and youth thank you!
In addition, the Arizona Community Education Association (AZCEA) voted unanimously to endorse the the Arizona Quality Standards for Out-of-School Time Programs at their September meeting. AZCEA provides Community Education leaders with the leadership, resources and support needed to develop and sustain quality Community Education programs across Arizona. This is another great step forward for youth statewide!
Join the momentum!  Let AzCASE know how we can help your program or district adopt and begin implementing the Quality Standards? Let us know!

We’re eagerly waiting to congratulate the 500th program to sign the Make It Count Pledge.  If your program has not already signed the Pledge, why wait?  Sign the Pledge today! Sign today.

We’re delighted by the Arizona’s out-of-school time support for a continuous quality improvement process. Thank you to the AZCEA and all 450 programs that have signed the Make It Count Pledge to date!
