Three Star Rating

Step Up To Quality (SUTQ)

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We are so excited that Sonshine Christian Academy has been chosen to be a three star center for our early childhood education and preschool special education programs!

All Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Preschool Special Education (PSE) programs funded by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) are mandated to participate in Step Up To Quality (SUTQ) and are required to achieve a rating of 3, 4, or 5 to maintain state funding, as well as administer and report on the Early Learning Assessment for all ECE and PSE funded children. The invitation to participate in SUTQ has now been made to all eligible publicly funded programs in Ohio.

In addition to ECE and PSE programs, ODE licensed programs that receive Publicly Funded Child Care (PFCC) funds from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) will be required to participate in SUTQ.

It is out job to be graded higher in the coming future. Stay tune!
