Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance (ERSEA) and Program Design Under the New HSPPS
The Head Start Program Performance Standards require that staff that conduct eligibility determinations receive training on the Head Start eligibility requirements within 90 days of conducting those determinations on the job. The performance standards also require governing body and policy council members to receive training on the eligibility requirements within 180 days of their term. This webinar will help your program comply with the often-confusing eligibility rules, and ensure that all of your employees who determine eligibility get needed training and that governing body and policy council members have an understanding of the rules as well. We'll cover not only the basics of the Head Start eligibility process but also discuss the consequences of knowing violations of the eligibility rules.
Eligibility Workers, Eligibility Managers, ERSEA staff, Executive Directors, Head Start program Directors, other senior staff, governing body and policy council members but all are welcome.
At the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Describe what the Head Start eligibility rules are;
- Observe where the pitfalls lie for your program in determining eligibility;
- Know what documentation your program should maintain regarding eligibility; and
- Other topics related to recruitment, selection; enrollment and attendance.
