Program Governance

EDCOE maintains a formal structure of program governance that includes a Governing Body and a Policy Council. The Governing Board assumes legal and fiscal responsibility for the child development programs and is comprised of the elected County Superintendent of Schools. Policy Councils are responsible for the direction of the agency's Head Start, Early Head Start and State Preschool programs. The Policy Council is comprised of elected parents that serve as a representative from each child development site/program. The Policy Council makes recommendations on program operations to the Governing Board. Copies of the complete Governing Board/Policy Council meeting packets may be obtained by contacting the Child Development Office at (530)295-2322.
