Policy Council Meetings

Come join us as a Policy Council Representative and celebrate the many contributions parents make. Being a Policy Council Representative gives parents an opportunity to have a meaningful voice in their child’s day to day Head Start life.  

CESA#11 Head Start offers many opportunities for families to be involved in their child’s education. Families can volunteer in the classroom, participate in parent committee meetings, work on projects outside of the school day, or become involved in program leadership through participation on Policy Council.  

 

Policy Council members have a meaningful voice in the overall operation of the Head Start program. The membership is responsible for:

  • Approval of program design

  • Grant approvals

  • Approval of the program budget

  • Advice on budget issues

  • Approve and update program Written Plans

  • Approval of hiring and separations

  • Participation on hiring teams

  • Public relations.
