Policy Council

Helping People. Changing Lives.

Policy Council is a formal structure of shared governance through which parents can participate in policymaking or in other decisions about the Head Start Program.

This provides a forum for the parents to have a voice in the program and leadership training opportunities.  Policy Council members have currently enrolled Head Start parents and interested community members who act as a link between those people making and carrying out decisions and the people Head Start serves. Policy Council members are elected by their peers.

Policy Council works in partnership with the leadership team and the Board of Directors to develop, review and approve policies, strategic directions, criteria for the recruitment, selection and enrollment of children, funding applications, personnel, and other business orientated activities that require Policy Council's approval.
