VQB5 Information for ECSE Administrators


The purpose of Unified Virginia Quality Birth to Five System (VQB5) is to strengthen the quality of teaching and learning experiences in early childhood programs, through the requirements of Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) observations, use of a vetted curriculum, and participation in Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program (VKRP). All publicly funded programs will be required to participate in VQB5 by school year 2023-2024, making the 2022-2023 school year the last opportunity to participate in a practice year. On August 17 at 12:00 pm, VDOE will host a webinar for school division leaders responsible for administrative oversight of local ECSE programs to provide information about the Unified Virginia Quality Birth to Five System (VQB5) 2022-2023 Practice Year. A representative from each school division is encouraged to register and attend.
