Head Start Policy Council

Organizational Leadership

Policy Council is a parent’s way to get involved in the governance of the 4C Head Start program. Parents/guardians have a voice in major program decisions, including such things as recruitment and selection policies, personnel policies, budgets, and funding proposals.

Every classroom elects a parent/guardian as a policy council representative and an alternate substitute representative. Meetings are held the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Orlando 4C office, 3500 W. Colonial Drive, starting at 6 p.m.
