It is time for a new release of the Rhode Island Notes! These are released twice a year. You may be asking, “What are the RI Notes?” The Rhode Island Notes are a running record of Environment Rating Scale (ERS) consensus decisions BrightStars’ reliable assessors have made following ERS-related questions or discussions. Why do we have them? BrightStars manages all of the reliable assessors for the Environmental Rating Scales in RI. These notes support Rhode Island in having a cohesive assessment system that provides a comparable program experience regardless of the assessor who visits the program.
