Collective Impact in Support of a Two-Generation Model

The Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) have been comprehensively revised for the first time in a generation.  Promoting Effective Management and Continuous Improvement of Head Start is a core component of the new HSPPS, where outcomes and impacts are used to demonstrate compliance and quality.   This two-day training will focus on:

  • Creating and sustaining an organizational culture that allows for agility in the face of change
  • Considerations for implementation of the new regulations
  • Exploring the confluence of public policy and program advancement
  • Demonstrating outcomes and impacts to key stakeholders

We will spend a significant amount of time considering changes to management practices, including coaching and support for program managers and the use of data to inform continuous quality improvement. 


Unique Learning Environment

Team Training

This two-day training has been specifically designed for teams of three or more persons with a goal of improving management’s ability to demonstrate the collective impact of the program to internal and external stakeholders.  We suggest that your participants include: the program director; the lead for school readiness; the lead for family engagement; the lead for compliance/quality assurance; and the lead for site-based operations (i.e. manager/coordinator who oversees center-based operations).





The Vision

All children, regardless of their circumstance at birth, deserve a full and prosperous life.

The Mission

  • Support high-impact Head Start programs for children and adults by creating opportunities for collaboration, networking and information sharing.
  • Unite with state and national Head Start organizations to ensure regulatory and budget outcomes that support our work.
  • Champion the message that every child and family who succeeds makes their community a better place.
