ERSEA: A Deeper Dive is designed to go beyond the basics of Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment, and Attendance (ERSEA) in Head Start and identify how Head Start and Early Head Start Managers, Coordinators, Directors, and Family Services staff can utilize ERSEA fundamental knowledge, data, and resources to best support program needs, oversight by leadership, and program planning. If your program is considering expanding the use of an eligibility category, increasing or decreasing the number of slots, converting slots, or other scenarios impacting ERSEA, you don’t want to miss this Institute.

The increasing requirements and challenges of ERSEA staff and leadership— Federal focus on oversight activities, data-driven decision-making, COVID-19 impacts, Pre-K prioritization—means that basic ERSEA knowledge and skills may not be enough to support program planning and decision-making. This training will build on the fundamentals of the Federal Regulations regarding Eligibility, Selection, Enrollment, Recruitment and Attendance in Head Start/Early Head Start introduced in Finding the Keys to ERSEA presented by WKU T/TAS.

Participants will better understand how to utilize ERSEA data and resources to support effective and innovative program planning. Participant pre-requisites are: Staff and Leadership with ERSEA responsibilities, minimum 6-months experience or completed the T/TAS Finding the Keys to ERSEA training, and recent review of community wide strategic planning and needs assessment (community assessment). Specific areas addressed include reviewing oversight activities, identifying trends impacting eligibility and/or service area, identifying good data, analyzing data to provide a foundation for decision-making, COVID-19 challenges and opportunities, as well other considerations supporting program planning.

ERSEA: A Deeper Dive is a two-day event for advanced review and discussion of Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance. Discussion and activities will empower staff to become program experts who support data analysis in the administration of an effective ERSEA system which supports program planning and implementation strategies.

Institute participants will receive a printable PDF version of the ERSEA Deeper Dive workbook that supports the training and includes relevant regulations and other useful resources. To facilitate discussion, this event will have limited registration, so you must enroll soon to secure your participation.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will expand basic ERSEA knowledge, appropriate for staff experienced with ERSEA and participants of Keys to ERSEA training;
  • Participants will expand their understanding of the practical application of the Head Start Program Performance Standards: Subpart A – Eligibility, Recruitment, Selection, Enrollment and Attendance;
  • Participants will enhance their understanding of how ERSEA and data driven decision-making impacts all services areas as they relate to ERSEA.
