The OST Program

Improved and Sustained Program Quality

The Palm Beach County Quality Improvement System (QIS) for afterschool consists of services and supports to increase afterschool program quality. Using the Palm Beach County Quality Standards for Afterschool as the foundation for the work, our quality advisors guide participating programs through a self-assessment process and development of an improvement plan. They assist executive directors, program managers and staff in identifying and implementing opportunities to improve quality for children and youth, and encourage the use of other Prime Time and community resources.
