Early Learning Evaluation

As the Early Learning Program begins to implement its new model in the 2017-18 program year, the program has engaged the PSESD Strategy, Evaluation and Learning Department to conduct a formal evaluation of the implementation of this model. The evaluation approach is developmental, meaning that:

  • The purpose of the evaluation is to examine and document implementation of the Early Learning design.
  • This information will be used to inform planning, strategy, and continued development of the design.

Given the ongoing nature of the evaluation, the evaluation team, Nathalie Jones and Dr. Laura Lynn, will provide current results and next steps related to the evaluation on this landing page, as they are available. Please contact either of the following with questions ot suggestions:

Policy Council 2017-18

Key decision and policy-making body for ECEAP, Head Start, and Early Head Start

Family involvement and leadership are critical to the success of our programs. Policy Council representatives, who are elected by their respective sites' parent groups, work in tandem with program administrators and the PSESD Board to make the decisions that directly affect our children and families. Policy Council members participate in all aspects of program planning and development, and must approve all personnel and budget recommendations. Policy Council members include:

    • Parents of currently enrolled children
    • Parents who have had a child in the program in previous years
    • Community agency representatives drawn from organizations that provide services, support, and/or resources to the families we serve

Policy Council meets monthly according to the calendar below. Policy Council representatives are eligible for a childcare and mileage subsidy reimbursement for meetings they attend. A light breakfast and lunch are served at meetings. All members of the community are welcome to attend and observe these meetings.

The Policy Council also plays a key role in identifying the needs of low-income families with young children in our communities by creating a Community Needs Report. This information complements the data collected as part of the Community Assessment Report. For information on both reports, see the Community Assesment page in the "For Staff" section.
