At the Region 9 Head Start Association (R9HSA), we have leaned into the Spring of 2020 with several efforts to ensure our community continues to collaborate, to learn and to advance.  Looking forward, we see the new program year, 2020-2021 generating both continued challenges and new opportunities. Most importantly, we know that the key to the R9HSA’s success is our engagement with you and your staff.  For our 2020-2021 membership year we have adopted STAY CONNECTED, STAY INVESTED as our theme.  We believe our collective effort is critical in advancing awareness of Head Start’s impact on children and families.
