The Community-Wide Benchmarks of Quality (CW-BoQ) was developed to provide Community Leadership Teams (CLT) with a tool to identify the critical elements for implementing the Pyramid Model for Promoting the Social and Emotional Competence of Infants and Young Children within early childhood education and care programs across the community. This tool might be used by a regional entity that has oversight for early childhood education programs in an area (e.g., county, service district), by a school district or Head Start grantee that has classrooms across multiple schools and programs, or by a community-level cross-sector team that has been formed to implement and scale-up Pyramid Model implementation.

MNCoE created this PTR-YC Implementation Guide to support Pyramid Model Implementation Sites in creating the structures that are necessary for PTR-YC to be scaled and sustained! We in Minnesota found that Implementation Sites had a degree of work to do around creating the structures that make PTR-YC happen, so we took this opportunity to create a PTR-YC Implementation Guide supporting programs in developing this structure….so we decided to take a stab at it. While this is a lengthy process programs can choose to go through at their own pace, it eventually supports programs in having the conversations they need to around PTR-YC.

This modified version of the Problem-Solving steps adds a fifth step of reflection/evaluation. This encourages teachers help the children reflect on the problems and how effective the solutions were. Coaches can help teachers design solution suitcases that include the steps on the outside and solutions on the inside. Including this fifth step on the outside of the suitcase ensures that it’s not missed by teachers nor students. This resource supports students who thrive on routines and left-to-right visual schedules to be able to follow the process through the four steps and to the fifth of sharing if it worked or not and how they knew or what they would do next time.
