Setting goals is a laudable and necessary exercise when implementing improvements in your educational system. However, many educators doubt the effectiveness or results of school improvement plans (SIPs).
Year after year, administrators and teachers face the threat of budget cuts. Even when the state legislature increases the budget for education, growing student populations, rising costs, and aging structures combine to erase gains.
Managing a childcare facility compliantly requires vast amounts of records, including immunization records for every child in your care. Obtaining the records may be simple, but storing them and accessing them as needed creates a system requiring too much room and offering too little efficiency.
School districts must monitor the progress of any school identified as needing "comprehensive support and improvement" or CSI, whether or not the school receives funds under Section 1003 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Efficiency and small children don't seem to go together. Still, you can reduce the chaos and move them along quicker with improved drop-off and pick-up procedures.
If the parents are happy, your childcare business will succeed. It really is that simple. For a childcare business or program, there are many ways to delight parents as you engage, entertain, and educate their children.
Most childcare programs are required by an array of agencies to prove themselves daily as a value to the community. Providing such evidence is time-consuming and can be fraught with errors.
The federal government distributed around $30 billion (with a “B”) for child nutrition programs for the 2018 fiscal year. $14 billion of that was for the National School Lunch Program. Unfortunately, the USDA reported improper payments to all four programs, including WIC, SFSP, SNAP, and the lunch program to the tune of $1.8 billion in that same fiscal year.
Providing childcare is very different from managing a business. If you have decided to open your own daycare, preschool, or other childcare business or facility, you could probably use some help.
