Policy Council

Head Start is based on the knowledge that parents play a key role in children’s lives and the belief that they should have a say in the program. Consequently Head Start parents are involved in policy and decision making for the program. The Policy Council is a representative group of parents from the Head Start program who work in partnership with the Board of Directors and key management staff to develop, review, and approve or disapprove policies and procedures and fulfill other key responsibilities. Policy Council meets one time a month and makes recommendations to the Board of Directors. Twice a year the groups meet together to discuss Head Start business.
