We are closely monitoring the situation related to COVID-19. We are actively checking information shared with us by the following sources:
We will continue to educate ourselves on appropriate responses as the facts and authorities update their recommendations.
Below are some great resources for you, your staff, and families to help you navigate these hectic times, so please take a moment to go through and take advantage of them.

In these times it is essential for you to share your story in many directions – with your staff, parents, partners, and the local media. We have created two tools for you to use in this effort.
The first is a simple MEDIA ADVISORY. Just a couple tips: The form should be sent to the education, lifestyle, feature, government reporter(s) of local newspapers and to the assignment editor of the local radio and/or TV stations. Print and electronic media also have news/tip submission portals on their websites, so these can be searched for and used. It’s best to paste the information into the web portal and not use an attached pdf or Word doc. Please share with the R9HSA any resulting coverage so that we may share it with others tracking the impact of Head Start. Click here to download the MEDIA ADVISORY.
In addition, the flow of information may be a challenge to staff and parents. As we move from this phase to the next, all of us are restless and ready for a change. Here is another tool that we have drafted to support the understanding of information sources. Click here to download – COVID-19 Information Guide & Websites.

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
