In Head Start/Early Head Start, a coordinated approach to program planning and management supports the provision of high-quality services for children and families.

The timing of these activities, and how they build upon each other, can impact their effectiveness and value they bring to the program.
As you know, the core components of community assessment are similar to the old Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS). In last week’s post, we talked about what’s the same and what’s different.
