Head Start Program Planning +
Virtual Workshop

Join us for this 2-hour virtual workshop facilitated by Paul Behrman of Walnut Leadership.


The Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS) provide specific requirements around establishing and achieving program goals, including strategic long-term goals responsive to community needs, goals for the provision of program services (inclusive of health and safety practices), and school readiness goals. These goals are informed by the program's community assessment, self-assessment and monitoring, and result in plans required for federal grant submissions in the Head Start Enterprise System (HSES).

This session will provide meaningful, easy-to-understand guidance, tools and templates for program leaders and participants to streamline and coordinate these processes and plans for better clarity, utility and impact.

Date: Friday, June 16

Time: 9:00am-11:00am

Registration Fee: $225 - registration closes on June 13!

(Zoom login information will be sent upon registering.)

This is for all Head Start Directors, HS/EHS Supervisors, Administrative Staff, Specialists in Health, Special Needs, Family Services, Education, ERSEA, Data Systems, and Fiscal Management.

  • Discuss the HSPPS around program planning and self-assessment, along with the types of goals and plans required by federal regulations. 
  • Review templates for developing three clear, actionable, "foundational plans," including: (A) Strategic Long-Term Plan; (B) Quality Assurance, Innovation & TTA Plan; and (C) School Readiness Plan. 
  • Learn tools and formats for structuring meaningful and participatory processes for facilitating annual program planning and self-assessment.  
After the workshop, participants will be able to log in to their LMS where they will have access to the workshop recording as well as other resources.
