Head Start and Early Head Start programs are required to align activities conducted by the program services with issues found within the community; in fact, five-year applications, DRS applications, and new grantee applications have the requirement that program design (based upon community issues) be tied to the approach to service delivery.

Head Start and Early Head Start programs are expected to provide services that meet the requirements of the Head Start Performance Standards while also meeting local needs and drawing upon local strengths. In order to document that they are adequately addressing local issues, Head Start and Early Head Start programs are required to conduct a Community Assessment once every five years with updates as needed in the intervening years.  

This insightful workshop is designed to aid program managers as they attempt to design their program’s future and identify the goals for their next five years. The process is now expected to point out current conditions and set the groundwork for expectations of tangible improvements to the community over the next five years as a result of the grantee providing Head Start services.

The 2019 Head Start/Early Head Start Community Assessment will help programs identify community needs and potential issues, and document those which will enter into the local program’s planning process and those which will be beyond the range of services. Attention will be paid to inserting community issues into program services plans and identifying potential impacts that community issues may have for the program’s operational environment.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will learn about Community Assessment requirements of 45 CFR 1302.11;
  • Participants will learn about Community Assessment requirements of five-year plans;
  • Participants will be shown how to estimate full day/full year needs;
  • Participants will become aware of how Community Assessment and its updates need to be used within the program and shared with the Board and Policy Council for the LGMS reviews; and
  • Participants will be shown how to estimate full day/full year needs, and use census tract information where needed.
