Who conducts the observations?
There is a team of trained and reliable Observation and Assessment Specialists at the Center on Early Learning and Youth Development (CELYD) who are able to travel across Oregon and can conduct observations in English, Spanish, and Russian-speaking programs.
How can having an observation support my Spark journey?
● Standard AB5 evidence includes self-assessment and outside evaluation in order to set program goals. Having an observation performed by someone outside of your program is one way to show evidence for this standard.
● Programs receive a summary report with feedback about what was observed in order to support identifying program strengths and potential opportunities for growth.
