Head Start Negative Findings

May 15, 2019

The number of deficiency findings for Head Start programs has been on the rise in recent years. In fact, it's rare for programs to undergo monitoring reviews and come away with no findings.

Unfortunately, in this era of additional scrutiny and consequences, every finding counts. Failure to correct findings of non-compliance will result in deficiencies and failure to correct deficiencies can result in the termination of your program. So, what do you do if you receive a monitoring report with deficiencies or non-compliances? 

FTLF has helped many programs respond to monitoring findings over the years. On this webinar, we will share our strategies and best practices for how to:

  • Review and analyze the final report
  • Draft a proper response
  • Develop a plan to address any findings of non-compliance or deficiencies
  • Improve internal processes to prevent future findings

Certificates of Attendance: We verify attendance upon completion of a webinar (live or recorded version) and will only issue certificates in the name of the account holder enrolled in the course. If you need to document attendance for someone other than the account holder, we provide blank Certificates of Attendance for a supervisor to sign and certify that a different individual viewed the course. 

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
