A well-trained Governing Body is an essential component to a strong Governance System that supports compliance, continuous improvement and innovation. The R9HSA is committed to supporting knowledge development and compliance for Governing Bodies and staff. We believe there is a direct connection between strong governing models and high quality experiences for staff, children and families.


A strong Governance System is built on clear processes, adherence to requirements, and development of positive relationships between management and Governing Bodies, which are  essential to support compliance, continuous improvement and innovation. This 2 hour interactive workshop will educate participants about the roles and responsibilities of Governing bodies including requirements and regulations. Additionally, this workshop will provide participants with the required Governing Body training in an overview of the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) and in HSPPS’s eligibility, selection and enrollment requirements. This workshop is ideal for Policy Council and Governing Body members, as well as staff who design and/or support Governance systems and operations.

Our goal is to make this training as virtually interactive as possible, therefore this will be a camera-on training. To maximize your learning experience, we ask that all registered participants prepare themselves to be on camera throughout the entirety of the session.
