Invitation for Administrator Training

CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES AND CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION -- DESIRED RESULTS SYSTEM TRAINING

The California Department of Social Services (CDSS) and California Department of Education (CDE) Desired Results (DR) System Regional Training will offer virtual training for administrators. The training model includes virtual, facilitated training from October thru May. Trainers will hold optional coffee hour sessions the second Thursday of every other month, November 2022–May 2023.

The administrator training incorporates an overview and in-depth information about the DR system; the implementation of the system at the classroom, program, and agency levels; reports including analysis of self-evaluation data and data for quality improvement; and additional support on specific components of the system. Participants also complete selected online modules available at California Early Childhood Online (CECO) www.caearlychildhoodonline.org.

Experienced administrators may attend any virtual session after October 5. The training session for administrators includes methods to support implementation of the DR system, updates, new products, and job aids.
