Why attend?

This preconference provides detailed, practical and actionable information on Head Start/Early Head Start (HS/EHS) program regulations.

Ideal audience:

  • New to EHS/HS funded programs
  • Need a refresher on the administrative and program guidelines of EHS/HS compliance

Wipfli's top trainers will help you get comfortable with HS and EHS regulations and guidelines to help you stay in compliance.

Through stories, examples and exploring the regulations, you will walk away knowing more about HS and EHS regulations and guidelines. We will pay special attention to the areas of:

  • Power and functions (governing body, policy council, policy committees and administrative requirements).

Session description:

The Head Start Act identifies pages of guidelines that HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance. When you are implementing the Head Start Act, there are numerous things to consider, including how decisions impact your program. In this overview, we will explore the Head Start Act and give you time to learn where to find information and dig into the details once you are back at the office. And since the Head Start Act goes hand in hand with the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS), we will explore the highlights of all of the HSPPS (45 CFR Parts 1301-1305). Our goal is to help you get comfortable with finding what HS/EHS programs need to follow to stay in compliance.

Learning objectives:

  1. Explore how the Head Start Act and the HSPPS impact each other.
  2. Discuss the future of these regulations.
  3. Share ideas, thoughts and best practices of ongoing leadership with these requirements.
