Head Start Eligibility for the Governing Body and Policy Council

September 15, 2020

Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance (ERSEA) requirements have long-confused Head Start programs. This webinar will cover:

  • The basics of the Head Start eligibility process
  • Strategies for maintaining compliance with eligibility rules
  • The consequences of knowing violations of the eligibility rules

Under the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS), staff that conduct eligibility determinations must receive training on the Head Start eligibility requirements within 90 days of conducting those determinations on the job. In addition, the HSPPS require that governing body and policy council members must be trained on the eligibility requirements within 180 days of their term.

In addition to helping your program comply with the often-confusing eligibility rules, this webinar will ensure that all of your employees who determine eligibility, as well as governing body and policy council members, have an understanding of the rules and receive the necessary training.

The On-Demand version of this webinar will be available for purchase after the conclusion of the live webinar.
