School-Age Parent and Infant Development Program Quality Review Instrument.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
The School-Age Parenting and Infant Development (SAPID) Program Quality Review (PQR) Instrument focuses on multiple uses related to California's SAPID programs. SAPID programs provide: (1) education for the school-age parent, including classes in parenting education, opportunities for career development, and high school graduation; and (2) care and development services for infants of school-age parents, including education, stimulation, health screening and treatment, and other vital provisions designed to meet the physical and emotional needs of infants. The PQR instrument consists of eight components: philosophy, goals, and objectives; administration; developmental profile; developmental programming; parenting education; family and community involvement; support services; and evaluation. Indicators of acceptable standards of program quality are specified within each component. Verification of acceptable standards is made through documentation, observation, or interview. The instrument is intended to be used not only for objective review of program quality, but also for self-review by governing or advisory boards and program staff; as a step-by-step approach to teaching the assessment of program quality; and as the basis for developing program improvement plans. A glossary of terms used in the instrument is provided. (RH)
