How do I know when to complete my Rising Stars for ME application?

Jul 12, 2023 | Rising Stars

At the end of March, all programs with active Quality for ME certificates were issued new Rising Stars for ME certificates. The expiration date appears on the certificate (example below).

Rising Stars Certificate example

If your program was active with Quality for ME in March 2023, but did not receive a new certificate, please email your license number to amber.taurasi@maine.gov for your expiration date.

Note: the expiration date on your Quality for ME Step Certificate and Rising Stars for ME will NOT be the same. Dates have been adjusted to align with license expiration dates or to provide a minimum period of time to apply.
