The implementation and scaling of an early education program


The current paper discusses the implementation and scaling of an early education program (Texas School Ready; TSR). Implementation and scaling of the TSR program were initially met with challenges such as participant/site recruitment, participant retention, and staff training. These 3 challenges are highlighted along with the ways in which delivery and support systems were used to address and mitigate these challenges. We highlight several key continuous quality improvement measures (for administrators, coaches/coordinators, teachers, and students) that are used to monitor and improve the implementation of the TSR program across the state. Collectively, the delivery and support systems along with the continuous quality improvement measures allow for the TSR program to be implemented not only at scale but also in ways that are sustainable across communities.
