The Policy Council


The Policy Council supports families in becoming involved in their child’s education and offers an opportunity for participation in program leadership. Members offer guidance on overall program operations, including family engagement efforts, community involvement, Parent Committee activities, review of written procedures, and review of program efforts. All First Start family participants are invited to become members of the Policy Council. Members may voluntarily elect to serve in officer roles to guide the Policy Council’s work and focus. Policy Council meets once per month.
