Interim Colorado Shines Ratings NOW VIRTUAL!

What is changing?
The Colorado Shines Rating remains mostly the same, with the exception of the classroom observation/Environment Rating Scale component. There will be no in-person classroom visits, and we have modified the scales to support a virtual assessment and align with current health department regulations.
Want to learn more?
We are beginning information sessions to help inform the state of the virtual process. See below for session details. Please note that sessions have a different focus, so register for the one that aligns best with your role. Want to attend more than one? You can! Please feel free to register for multiple sessions. All sessions will be recorded and posted to Clayton’s website.
What are other ways I can get information?
Colorado Shines Q&A sessions occur the third Friday each month. These are by invitation only to providers and provider support staff that are either in their rating window, or approaching it. All sessions are recorded and posted to Clayton’s website. State TA webinars for Councils occur the fourth Thursday of each month.
