21st CCLC Self-Assesment
All 21st CCLC grantees are required to complete the Program Quality Self Assessment Tool. As outlined in the Program Quality Self-Assessment Tool Guidebook 2017, the PQSA Tool guides 21st CCLC programs in dialogue around program quality. This process makes program improvement easier and ideally more honest because it is predicated on a staff- and stakeholder-directed method, rather than one of external monitoring. The tool is designed such that staff and stakeholders reflect, assess and work collaboratively to create a quality improvement plan.
