Our  Policy Council  is a parent advisory group that works with the agency director on issues that directly affect the children enrolled in the agency programs. Our Policy Council, comprised of elected representatives from Head Start and Early Head Start parents and community members, is one of the two governing bodies of the agency. Policy Council meets monthly to review financial and program reports and approve budgets, policy changes, program direction, and staff hires.
