Head Start Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center
Head Start wanted a course to orient individuals in their local Head Start governing bodies. The individual learners had very different backgrounds, potentially having experience as educators, health professionals, parents, tribal council members, or other functions. The course needed to address governing body members with these differing backgrounds, familiarize them with their roles, and prepare the learners to make effective use of many different resources.
Working with its partner Education Development Center, Illumina developed the Governance course for Head Start, providing interactive exercises within the course, and also giving access to a large number of supplementary resources, such as Head Start Program Performance Standards.
