Head Start Policy Council

  • Policy Council is a formal governing body made up of parents, past parents, and community representatives.  Through monthly meetings, Policy Council empowers its members to have a direct voice in program policy.  The Council gives Head Start parents the opportunity to make decisions that affect their children's growth and development.
