Board of Directors Reports

Policy Council

Parents are voted onto the Policy Council by the parents at each Head Start site and the Early Head Start program. Community Members are voted on by the current parents on the Policy Council.

Monthly Meeting

Policy Council meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month. At those meetings, members review monthly reports and are given updates on how the program is doing overall. Members are given time during each meeting to ask questions and share information about their sites.

Benefits of Joining the Parent Policy Council

  • Develop leadership skills.
  • Learn to be an advocate.
  • Network with other parents and staff.
  • Represent the voice of the children and parents at your site.
