Child Care Best Practices Survey
Pursuant to Senate Bill 1104, the State is required to conduct a survey of child care best practices and an error rate study to strengthen program integrity. The attached survey requests information that the Department needs to meet this legislative requirement.
We know that many counties and programs have various procedures and practices they use for program integrity. On December 9, 2004, the attached survey was sent to all county child care coordinators to solicit their input. In an effort to collect comprehensive information on this subject, your input is also being requested.
Please e-mail your responses to the attached survey and, if applicable, checklists, reports, or other relevant items no later than December 24, 2004 to:
If you prefer to fax your responses, please direct them to Bill Mullinax at 916-263-5707.
If you have any questions, please call Mr. Mullinax at 916-263-5708. Your input and assistance in this matter is appreciated.
Gary Garyson, Chief
