Know! What Your Kids Are Watching - 13 Reasons Why

ThinkstockPhotos-615610100-1.jpgEven if you haven’t heard of 13 Reasons Why, don’t assume your pre-teen or teen hasn’t, and do approach this as if he/she may have caught some, several or all 13 episodes. The controversy surrounding this show is the subject matter and how it is being addressed, including depression, bullying, emotional abuse, substance abuse, sexual assault and suicide – and the viewing audience – as this series is the latest buzz in middle and high schools across the nation.

Step Up To Quality Guidance

StepUp_Tagline_5stars.pngStep Up To Quality (SUTQ) is Ohio's quality rating system for child care programs. The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) use a comprehensive, one- to five-star rating system to assess ODJFS- and ODE-licensed early childhood programs that choose to excced minimum health and safety standards. Starting in 2020, all child care programs that recieve state funding will be required to participate in Step Up To Quality. Ratings are posted online, and parents can use them to choose the program that is best for their child. 

Highly rated programs require continuing education for teachers and staff, use child assessments to guide learning and development, and take additonal steps to help prepare children for kindergarten. In return, they receive additional funding and free marketing materials to help spread the news about their SUTQ rating and attract new customers.

This guide is desinged for child care providers working to achieve star ratings. This includes: 

  • Child care programs registering for SUTQ for the first time
  • Child care programs that already have at least one SUTQ star
  • County agencies
