Have you checked out the searchable database of conference sessions? This is a great tool to help plan your time at the conference. Search by keyword to find sessions related to topics of most interest to you. This year’s conference provides a wide range of session topics! If you’re looking for sessions related to implementation of the new Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) you’ll find a session led by the Office of Head Start (OHS), as well as area-specific sessions such as Parent, Family and Community Engagement (PFCE) and health literacy. Even if you don’t see “HSPPS” in the title of a session, it looks like many sessions will touch on connections to implementation of the new standards.
If you will be in Chicago for the conference and are interested in connecting please email Amy Augenblick, Executive Director, at [email protected]. Foundations for Families’ consultants have significant experience and expertise advising Head Start and Early Head Start grantees on an array of topics such as finances and budgeting, program management and organizational systems, personnel strategies, governance, monitoring and quality assurance.
See you in Chicago!
