HS/EHS are some of the largest Federally funded programs. The Head Start Act and the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) contain pages and pages of guidelines that HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. When you are implementing these regulations, there are numerous things to consider, including how decisions impact your program. In this boot camp, 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 HSPPS, we will explore the highlights of all of the HSPPS (45 CFR Parts 1301-1305). And though this is not a 2-day Uniform Guidance (UG) training, we will certainly highlight areas of the UG regulations (45 CFR Part 75) in the areas of allowable costs and procurement. The 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, spending Federal funds, and non-federal match [a/k/a in-kind]) -Power and functions (governing body, policy council, policy committees, and administrative reports) -ERSEA (eligibility, recruitment, selection, enrollment, and attendance) -Records (what to keep, how to keep them, and for how long) -Qualifications and wages (background check, minimum staff requirements). From running the program, to working with the board and policy council, to collaborating with the fiscal department – this boot camp will help you discover action items to take back to the program to help you get up-to-speed and make impact.
