(Recorded Webinar) Designation Renewal System Update

Duration: 90 minutes
Webinar recorded on: 9/30/2020

On August 28, 2020, the Office of Head Start (OHS) published a Final Rule updating the Designation Renewal System (DRS). Specifically, the Final Rule updated three of the seven current DRS conditions, including the (1) deficiency condition, (2) condition related to the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®), and (3) fiscal condition related to audit findings. On a whole, these changes are a positive development for Head Start programs nationwide.  You may have seen the OHS guidance and watched the OHS webinar summarizing the final rules and the OHS Q&A Session.  Hear what FTLF attorneys have to say about what Head Start programs should be thinking about with respect to the new rules on DRS.  During this webinar we will share our observations on the key revisions, highlight particularly impactful changes, and discuss the likely future implications for Head Start Programs.

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.
