The Head Start Act identifies pages of guidelines that HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. When you are implementing the Head Start Act, there are numerous things to consider, including how decisions impact your program. In this overview, we will explore the Head Start Act and give you time to learn where to find information and dig into the details once you are back at the office. And since the Head Start Act goes hand in hand with the Head Start Program Performance Standards, 45 CFR Parts 1301-1305 (HSPPS), we will explore the highlights of the HSPPS. Our goal is to help you get comfortable with what HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. We will pay special attention to the areas of: -Definitions (they sometimes differ depending on the regulation) -Administrative requirements (administrative limitations) -Power and functions (governing body, policy council, policy committees and administrative requirements) -ERSEA (eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment and attendance) -Records (what to keep, how to keep it and for how long) -Qualifications and wages (background checks, trainings, minimum staff requirements) -Monitoring Protocol (FA1 and FA2)
