In all Head Start programs, emphasis is understandably placed on fulfilling our charter to meet the requirements of Part 1302 of the regulations that guide early childhood development and health services, family and community partnerships, and program design and management. As a result of that strong focus, however, many programs overlook or minimize the importance of Part 1302 of the regulations, which defines who should receive services in communities and how grantees should identify and reach them in fulfillment of grant commitments.

This training builds on the basics established in Level One. It develops a further understanding of the regulations, provides ideas for implementation, and places an emphasis on systems management. Level Two focuses on best practices in implementation and management that make ERSEA processes successful, such as:

  • Using a team approach to ERSEA design and execution
  • Defining ongoing roles and responsibilities
  • Using key agency assets in ERSEA, including the community assessment, strategic plan, self assessment, program
  • information report, service delivery plans, and selection criteria
  • Developing agency work plans for implementation

This training is targeted for: ERSEA Team Members, Policy Council, Program Managers, and Key Management Team Members
