T/TAS adds a new product for Head Start/EHS Decision Makers
- Tuesday, September 4th, 2012
Harmony, synergy, alliance, unity, and cooperation are appropriate synonyms to describe the characteristics of the effective decision makers in a Head Start and Early Head Start Program. Understanding the role of decision-makers is critical to the success of Head Start and/or Early Head Start programs. Decision making groups share many responsibilities with the management staff to ensure that there are effective practices, policies, and procedures.
The Governing Body and Policy Council are central in the design and delivery of services, and it is important that they fully understand the processes for meeting those responsibilities. Successful shared decision-making requires an ongoing commitment to change, growth, and continuous improvement of practices, policies and procedures. Successful shared decision-making means that sometimes it is more important to compromise than to win. Each respective player has a critical role in bringing his or her unique voice to balance the Head Start/Early Head Start equation.
The materials presented in CEO, Cooperative Effective Oversight for Head Start and Early Head Start Decision Makers, are designed for use as a general training guide for audiences comprised of Head Start and/or Early Head Start staff, parents, families, Parent Committees, Policy Councils, and Governing Bodies.
