  Ultimately, monitoring results are analyzed for performance and compliance trends across the each Local Early Steps and the statewide system. The analysis serves as the basis for decision-making regarding personnel development and training needs, resource allocation, statewide and local technical assistance, implementation of incentives and enforcement actions, determinations and policy revision, and clarification. The following information is reviewed:

  1. progress toward State Performance Plan targets,
  2. status of implementation of the team-based primary service provider model,
  3. identified training needs,
  4. dispute resolution issues,
  5. feedback from families, and
  6. results of Quality Assurance monitoring
