Educator and Provider Support Regional Grantees

Educator and Provider Support Regional Grantees

Assessment for Responsive Teaching (ART) collaborates with the five Educator and Provider Support (EPS) Grantees across the state to determine regional assessment training needs and suitable locations.

The Educator and Provider Support (EPS) grant supports pathways to lead educators to degree attainment and increased competency through certificates and credentials; helps programs to attain and maintain accreditation and upward movement on the Massachusetts Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS); and fosters a comprehensive professional development system that addresses leadership development and leaders in the field.

Each EPS Grantee has an Assessment Training Coordinator (ATC) who schedules training for that particular region. If you are interested in hosting a training, please contact the ATC in your region.
