DEL Program Review - Updates due March 31

DEL Request PSESD Response

A-13 Confidentiality: Please identify where I can find "the disposing of written records in a secure manner" in the policy/procedures.

WA State Archives Records Retention Schedules for School Districts and Educational Service Districts

A-14 Subcontractors: Please identify where I can find the funding per slot in the contracts provided.

Cost Allocation Chart

Current practice is to include this cost allocation chart in communication through emails with Center Directors and has not been included in the language of the contact (the second page). For our 2014-15 Subcontractor Contract templates we will include a space for per child allocation as well as the total number of slots funded and the total contract amount on the face pages.

C-2 Staff Recruitment and Selection: Please submit documentation to show evidence of any labor pool shortage.

All ECEAP site staff are employees of their respective subcontractor, not PSESD. When a subcontractor submits a New Hire Packet to PSESD for an employee hired on a Professional Development Plan (Page 7), Center Directors sign off that they have documentation on file showing evidence of a labor pool shortage (recruitment strategies, job ads, number of applicants, etc). This documentation is kept at the center level.

C-15 Health Professional Qualifications

Sample 1 subcontractor survey: Bethel: Please submit copies of licenses or diplomas showing degrees for nurse consultants.
o Sharon Miller-Callup
o Sandra Boyer
o Debbie Williamson
o Cathryn Plummer
o Deann Sellars

Note 1: Performance Standards are incorporated into related trainings (ie, standards regarding restraint are covered at the Limited Restraint training). PSESD does not offer a training specifically addressing Performance Standards.

Note 2: Subcontractors are responsible for ensuring that each staff member receives at least 15 hours of professional learning each year. Center Directors ensure PSESD that this expectation is being met on the annual Subcontractor Survey. PSESD provides most, but not all, training to site staff. The number of hours provided by PSESD depends on the position of the staff member.

E-8 Child Guidance: Please identify where I can find the following statement in the child guidance policy "prohibited corporal punishment, holding grabbing or moving the child in an aggressive manner, verbal abuse, physical restraint method that is injurious to the child or withholding food or liquids a punishment or reward"

PSESD Early Learning prepares to request
additional ECEAP slots for 2014-15

The PSESD Early Learning Program will be submitting an RFA (Request for Application) to DEL which will outline our interest in applying for additional ECEAP slots for the 2014-15 school year.

Please see the ECEAP Expansion page for more information.

Welcome to

PSESD Early Learning Site Staff Resources


We are opening the new 2013-14 school year with great news! Puget Sound ESD ECEAP and Head Start programs are taking charge to integrate into one unified and efficient Early Learning Program. To better communicate the information that you need to do your work, we have moved the various resources found previously on separate ECEAP and Head Start web pages, and organized them here on EarlyLearningWA.org.

NAVIGATING THE WEBSITE
We will be adding features to the website over time, but for now we have three areas of content as you can see on the Menu Bar above. Below is the specific information under each button:

Early Learning ECEAP Head Start
Integrated resources for both
ECEAP and Head Start
 Resources specific to ECEAP Resources specific to Head Start
and Early Head Start

 

PAGES THAT ARE "UNDER CONSTRUCTION"
Initially, you may find some that pages of our website are "Under Construction." Please be patient as we continune to build this website.

"FIND A CLASSROOM" PAGE
Use this page to search for ECEAP, Head Start, and Early Head Start sites in the PSESD Early Learning service area. Search tools include searches by City or Zip Code, as well as by the child's age.

 

Searching?

  • Try using the "Search" box in the upper right-hand corner on the page.
  • Your search will be more successful if you put the words "ECEAP" or "Head Start" in the search line when you need specific program information.
