Parent Committee & Policy Council News

Parents like you make the Head Start Program the success that it is!  Since you have the most contact with your child,

you are your child’s most effective teacher.  You are encouraged to participate in the program as much as possible.

Parent Committee

All parents are automatically members of your Head Start site’s Parent Committee and are encouraged to be active members.  Meeting will be held via Zoom until further notice.  During the meetings you will help plan exciting activities for your child, including parties and site activities.  You will also be able to choose topics for trainings that can be held during your parent meetings.  

If you are interested in participating please be sure to attend your center’s  November parent meeting via Zoom.  You will receive the Zoom invitation as the meeting gets closer.  

Policy Council

Policy Council is one of the governing bodies of Head Start and is comprised of Head Start parents and representatives from the community.  The purpose of Policy Council is to involve parents in the decision-making processes of Head Start.  Representatives help to make decisions concerning:  funding, expenses, budgets and other policies concerning the program as a whole.  

Representatives from each center will be elected at the first parent meeting in September.  New representatives will begin their term in November.  Policy Council meets on the Friday prior to the Board of Trustees meeting, each month at 11 am via Zoom. 

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THESE EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES PLEASE ATTEND THE NOVEMBER PARENT COMMITTEE MEETING!
