CEELO is introducing a new tool to help calculate the costs of administration as part of the true cost of high-quality preschool.
The State Administrative Cost of Quality (SACQ) tool helps states generate data on the functions and costs of the State Infrastructure to Implement, Monitor and Sustain Quality of early childhood programs. The budget tool is organized around a continuum of state- and regional-level administrative capacities framework spanning policy/program development, forecasting and planning, provider recruitment, contracting, child enrollment, and workforce development. SACQ is an Excel-based model that can be integrated into the Cost of Preschool Quality & Revenue Calculator (CPQ&R) to help users determine costs and funding sources related to implementing high-quality preschool programs.
