Resources

This resource is a planning and implementation guide for State/Territory teams as they develop and strengthen an aligned professional development system (PDS). It defines the key elements of an aligned State/Territory PDS, as set out by the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Plan Preprint and common national models, as well as guiding principles that have emerged as States/Territories move to develop aligned PDS. A developmental continuum of systems alignment is also included in this guide. The provided considerations for developing or advancing aligned PDS are built on a readiness for change process framework, with four steps focused on goal/outcome development, fit and feasibility and readiness to change, implementation, and monitoring.

This resource is a planning and implementation guide for State/Territory teams as they develop and strengthen technical assistance (TA) supports. It also describes an aligned State/Territory professional development system (PDS), and defines TA as part of an aligned PDS. The provided considerations for developing or advancing aligned PDS are built on a readiness for change process framework, with four steps focused on goal/outcome development, fit and feasibility and readiness for change, implementation, and monitoring.

This resource is a planning and implementation guide for State/Territory teams as they develop and strengthen distance learning options as part of an aligned professional development system. The guide provides considerations built on a readiness for change process framework, with five steps focused on scanning existing initiatives and investments, goal/outcome development, fit and feasibility and readiness for change, implementation, and monitoring.

This resource is a planning and implementation guide for State/Territory teams as they develop and enhance workforce data systems. It discusses the foundational role that workforce data and data systems play in aligned State/Territory professional development systems (PDS), the status of workforce data, and guiding principles that have emerged as States/Territories move toward comprehensive workforce data systems. The provided considerations for developing or advancing workforce data systems build on a readiness for change process framework with five steps that focus on scanning existing data and systems, goal/outcome development, fit and feasibility and readiness for change, implementation, and monitoring.

This resource is a planning and implementation guide for State and Territory teams as they develop or revise and then implement core knowledge and competencies (CKCs). It also describes an aligned State and Territory professional development system (PDS), and defines CKCs as a foundational part of an aligned PDS. The provided considerations are built on a readiness for change process framework, with four steps for developing or revising and implementing CKCs that focus on goal or outcome development, fit and feasibility and readiness for change, implementation, and monitoring.
