QUALITY GUIDELINES

In 2011, the Kansas Quality Afterschool Leadership Team developed a framework, guidelines, and self-assessment tool to aid program staff in providing high quality services for youth. A second edition of the quality guidelines and self-assessment was created in 2018 with the support of the Quality Afterschool Workgroup. The 2021 update brings up to date guidelines and a version of the self-assessment that is further aligned with the Core Competencies for Early Childhood and Youth Development Professionals (Kansas and Missouri).
