Head Start Governance Tool Kit

The Tool for Head Start Governance

Wipfli LLP and Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP have partnered to offer their nationally recognized Head Start expertise in a unique format.

What is the Head Start Governance Tool Kit?

The success of every Head Start program depends upon the ability of the Governing Board and Policy Council to properly work together with the organization's management team. The Head Start for School Readiness Act of 2007 included many provisions that made dramatic changes to the governance structure and to the responsibilities of both the Governing Board and Head Start Policy Council. To ensure your organization's compliance, we have designed this service to provide:

  • Guidance on the composition, roles and responsibilities of both the Governing Board and Policy Council.
  • Model policies and procedures for carrying out responsibilities.
  • Access to Head Start legal and regulatory experts.
  • Sample legal documents applicable to Head Start Governance.
  • Updates pertinent to regulatory and other changes as they happen so you can stay on top of the governance issues affecting your Head Start program.
  • Additional reference materials.

Pricing Information

The Head Start Governance Tool Kit has a one-time activation fee of $1,295, which includes the first year of maintenance. The annual maintenance fee is then only $495. The best part about the price of the Head Start Governance Tool Kit? Subscribing organizations are allowed an unlimited number of members for their annual fee! That's right — your management team, board and policy council members all have access for one, low annual fee.

"We used a Head Start Governance Toolkit template for revision of our Board of Directors by-laws and were very pleased. Our attorney board member used the template to develop a draft and our corporate attorney had only four very minor suggestions for wording changes. He made a point of saying that it was an excellent template. Thanks!"
