The New Head Start Program Performance Standards

The Office of Head Start recently published the first comprehensive revision to the Head Start and Early Head Start Program Performance Standards in over two decades.  The new Head Start Program Performance Standards are already in effect, but full standards will be phased in over five years.  All Head Start and Early Head Start agencies need to have a thorough understanding of the new Performance Standards.  This workshop will explain the key requirements under the revised Performance Standards.

In this session, participants will learn the following:

  • Major changes to Head Start rules under the new Program Performance Standards.
  • What has stayed the same under the new Program Performance Standards.
  • Implementation timelines and delayed implementation.
  • Governance, financial and administrative, and program operation requirements.
  • Latest interpretations of the revised Performance Standards from the Office of Head Start.

This session is recommended for all Head Start and Early Head Start professionals, board members, and Policy Council members.
