San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors Grantee Policy Council



A unique feature of the Head Start Program is the shared responsibility system wherein parents of enrolled children have a role in developing and approving program plans, budgets and personnel actions. The Policy Council works in partnership with the grantee management team and the Board of Supervisors in the development and approval of policies and procedures associated with grant applications, program planning, selection of participating agencies, and the assessment of the program's strengths and challenges.


Policy Council members are elected from the ranks of parents whose children are currently enrolled in the San Joaquin County Head Start Program, as well as community representatives who may have formerly had children enrolled in the Program or serve as representatives of local service agencies from the private and public sector.
