Policy Council 2015-16

Key decision and policy-making body for ECEAP, Head Start, and Early Head Start

Family involvement and leadership are critical to the success of our programs. Policy Council representatives, who are elected by their respective sites' parent groups, work in tandem with program administrators and the PSESD Board to make the decisions that directly affect our children and families. Policy Council members participate in all aspects of program planning and development, and must approve all personnel and budget recommendations. Policy Council members include:

      • Parents of currently enrolled children
      • Parents who have had a child in the program in previous years
      • Community agency representatives drawn from organizations that provide services, support, and/or resources to the families we serve

Policy Council meets monthly according to the calendar below. Policy Council representatives are eligible for a childcare and mileage subsidy reimbursement for meetings they attend. A light breakfast and lunch are served at meetings. All members of the community are welcome to attend and observe these meetings.

2016-17 Policy Council Info Session, Training, and Meeting Dates:   English   Spanish

Training Presentation:   English   Spanish

Policy Council Bylaws:   English   Spanish

For information on Policy Council as a Governing Body, see the SHARED GOVERNANCE page in the Program Administration section.

The Policy Council also plays a key role in identifying the needs of low-income families with young children in our communities by creating a Community Needs Report. This information complements the data collected as part of the Community Assessment Report. For information on both reports, see the Community Assesment page in the "For Staff" section.
