OMB 0970-0515

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) seeks approval to collect descriptive information for the Study of Coaching Practices in Early Care and Educational Settings (SCOPE) project. The goal of this information collection is to identify how professional development coaching practices for early care and education (ECE) providers are implemented and vary in ECE classrooms serving children supported by Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) subsidies or in settings that receive Head Start grants. This request is for conducting three data collection activities. First, we will collect information on coaching taking place in different states in spring 2018 (pending OMB approval) from state-level entities. Second, we will conduct one round of survey data collection with ECE center director, coaches, teachers, and family child care (FCC) providers in fall 2018 through winter 2019. Third, we will conduct case studies to better understand factors that influence the coaching approaches identified through the survey data collection. The case studies will include semi-structured interviews, a coaching session observation, and collection of coaching logs. The case studies will occur in fall 2019 through winter 2020.
