Whether you are developing, updating or implementing your ERSEA policies and procedures, you’ll want to make sure you are doing it the right way, that is, legally. 

Tomorrow, June 20, confirm that you are in compliance (or not, and find out how to fix it)  in a webinar presented by Feldesman Tucker attorney Ted Waters: Understanding Head Start and Early Head Start Eligibility.

It is from 3-5 EST and you can register here.

We’ve read that,

This session will help your program comply with the often-confusing eligibility rules, and ensure that all of your employees who determine eligibility get needed training.  We’ll cover not only the basics of the Head Start eligibility process, but also discuss the consequences of knowing violations of the eligibility rules.  This webinar will cover:

  • What the Head Start eligibility rules are (and, which are mandatory or optional);
  • Where the pitfalls lie for your program in determining eligibility (including reviewing eligibility documents and signing income verification forms); and
  • How to ensure your program is in compliance with the requirements of the Improving Head Start for School Readiness Act; PIs and the Head Start Policy Clarifications.
Tips for best practices will be included and your questions will be addressed.
We like these webinars a lot and many of you have told us that you do, too.  We recommend that you participate if you have time.  There are many other important Head Start webinars available from their website, too. 
Thank you.
