ERSEA FAQs (Live Series)
Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP (FTLF) has been training Head Start programs on the ERSEA (Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance) requirements for many years. Our trainings have covered an overview of all the requirements, but after each training event we often have multiple follow-up questions on just how to implement and apply the rules. Some ERSEA provisions are intricate and tricky, but even when the language seems straightforward, difficulties arise when applying that language to the countless real-life situations.
The “E’s” of ERSEA seem to cause the most anxiety. First, eligibility requirements gained even more emphasis after the 2010 GAO Report that encouraged the Head Start community to make sure that staff understood the nature and seriousness of the eligibility determination process. More recently, the Enrollment PI has placed more pressure on Head Start programs to work even harder to maintain full enrollment or risk facing huge financial consequences.
Over the years, we have logged the many ERSEA questions we have received, and, in this series, we will review the answers to those thorny questions that might be keeping you up at night as well as responses to the questions you didn’t even know you had.
