APR Differences from VT to PAT Portal

This year, programs have the option to report on families and children based on the 2020-2021 OR 2021-2022 APR requirements. PATNC is offering programs the ability to report Option 1 or Option 2 in their portal.

Result is that item numbers are thrown off when comparing Visit Tracker to the PAT Portal. However, the text is still identical.

Here’s some guidance to help resolve this difference.

  • Pay attention to each item’s title and description. This is the same across both Visit Tracker and PAT report.
  • If you choose Option 1, then use Visit Tracker’s APR 2020-2021 to answer those items that are labeled as “(Option 1)” in the PAT Portal.
  • If you choose Option 2, then use Visit Tracker’s APR 2021-2022 to answer those items that are labeled as “(Option 2)” in the PAT Portal.
  • For all other APR items, use Visit Tracker’s APR 2021-2022
