HEAD START/EARLY HEAD START POLICY COUNCIL
Parents are voted onto the Policy Council by the parents at each Head Start site and the Early Head Start program. Community Members are voted on by the current parents on the Policy Council.
For information about being involved with Policy Council either as a parent or community member, please call Heather Diehl, Family Services Director at (717) 263-8019 ext. 212 or email at [email protected]
Policy Council meetings are held once a month on the third Monday of each month. At those meetings, members review monthly reports and are given updates on how the program is doing overall. Members are given time during each meeting to ask questions and share information about their sites.
