New ESSENTIAL requirements beginning July 2018
An organization must adhere to the Essential Requirements to become and remain a Parents as Teachers affiliate. New affiliates’ program design for meeting these requirements is demonstrated through the Affiliate Plan. Data that addresses these requirements is reported annually on the Affiliate Performance Report (APR). These requirements represent the minimum or maximum levels needed for model fidelity. Additional resources such as the Model Implementation Guide, the Quality Standards, and TA Briefs provide guidance and best practices recommendations for high-quality replication of the Parents as Teachers model. Additional guidance and a timeline for affiliates are available in the ebusiness portal.
