Parent 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 Deborah Conley, Community and Parent Relations Specialist at (616) 453-4145 ext. 2205 or email at dconley@hs4kc.org.

Monthly Meeting

Policy Council meetings are held once a month on the second Friday 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.
